Ukraine VAT cut to 17% 2021

  • Feb 22, 2020 | Richard Asquith

The Ukrainian government has prepared a draft budget lowering the standard VAT rate from 20% to 17% on 1 January 2021. Ukraine is proposing to extend the VAT to electronic services provided by non-resident companies.

The country last committed to cut VAT in 2014, but failed to go ahead due to a weakening economy.
