The Government has backed a bill that would exempt mortgage loan compensation from taxation. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
“Currently, Ukraine has the eOselya programme, which can be used by military personnel, defenders of Ukraine, healthcare workers, scientists and teachers. Under the draft law, applicants will not have to pay either 18% personal income tax or 1.5% military duty. This will ease the financial pressure on families who have received housing and are paying off the loan,” said Denys Shmyhal.
In total, almost a thousand families have received housing through the eOselya programme. A total of UAH 1.2 billion in concessional loans have been granted.
In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has expanded the eRobota programme. Three new types of grants for veterans have been added and the programme’s geographical scope has been expanded to eight more regions.
According to Denys Shmyhal, Ukrainians have already submitted almost 23,000 applications for non-repayable grant programmes. 3,500 new businesses have been set up.
