At a meeting on 27 December, the Government approved the National Revenue Strategy for 2024-2030, thus fulfilling one of the structural beacons of the cooperation programme with the International Monetary Fund. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
"The goal of the strategy is to strengthen the fiscal capacity of the state, to adapt tax and customs legislation to EU standards, to create incentives for post-war recovery and economic growth," the Head of Government stressed.
Thus, in the area of tax administration, it is the integrity of tax officers, increasing public confidence in the State Tax Service, improving the efficiency of risk management, and automating processes. In the customs area, it is a consistent fight against corruption, clear interaction with business based on clear algorithms, and new digital solutions for the customs service.
"We have to do a huge amount of work, harmonise our legislation with the European one and improve the quality of our institutions," said Denys Shmyhal.
In addition, the Government approved an Action Plan for the implementation of the Integrated Border Management Strategy. According to the Prime Minister, this will allow us to respond comprehensively and effectively to all challenges in the field of state border security, cross-border activities, and cooperation with our western neighbours, the EU states.
"We are talking about the introduction of European practices of control procedures, joint control on the western border on the one-stop-shop principle, technical modernisation of checkpoints, digitalisation and automation of processes, information exchange and much more," said Denys Shmyhal.
The Head of Government noted that all this would help to avoid queues at the borders, speed up the movement of goods, and create the most convenient border space for both businesses and all Ukrainians.
