Ukraine

As the Interfax reports, budget revenues from taxes increased by 28 per cent y/y in the period January-July 2017 in Ukraine. In total, Ukrainian taxpayers paid UAH412bn (EUR13bn) of taxes and duties. It means the fiscal service has been posting payments to the national budget exceeding the targets every month. Such outcomes were possible thanks to toughening the measures aimed at bringing the economy out of the shadows, increasing combat with smuggling and violation of customs rules.

Revenues of the national budget of Ukraine in January-July 2017 totaled UAH447.6bn, which is 10.3 per cent above the target for the period.

Croatian cabinet has revoked its controversial decision to raise taxes on imports of fruit and vegetables. According to The Ordinance on the Increase of Import Taxes import fees for 168 non-EU countries were to grow 22 times (from EUR12 to EUR270).

At the beginning of August, European media were announcing a trade war between Zagreb and the capitals of neighboring Balkan countries. Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Macedonia informed they will introduce their own taxes for Croatia. They have also written an open letter to the European Commission demanding the new Croatian measures to be revoked. EU officials were negotiating with Croatia and have been urging all countries involved to prevent an escalation.
