MOSCOW, 2 February. The government has proposed increasing the normal dividend payments of all companies to 50% of the profits, told reporters the head of the Agency Olga Dergunova.
“We proposed to consider the possibility of increasing the limit value to 50% for all companies. Now the threshold is considered, discussed, the figure is not established,” she said, noting that this norm may be extended to dividends for 2015.
“25% is standard, less of which state-owned companies do not pay to the Russian budget. For 2016 we have proposed to increase this percentage, and in that case, if the government will support this decision, we will receive additional sources of income not less than 110 billion rubles,” – said the Minister
This increase in dividend payouts can give the budget an additional 110 billion rubles. In 2015, the Agency transferred to the Federal Treasury 258 billion roubles of dividends from state companies for 2014.

The share of public sector in the national economy
The Agency also plans in 2016 to implement a project for the calculation of the proportion of the public sector in the national economy, said the Minister.
“We hope to implement a project for the calculation of the proportion of the public sector in the national economy. This project is supported by the OECD and will give us a versatile tool for counting and analyzing the effectiveness of public companies and the adoption of the decision, including with regard to capacity of the public sector at the regional level,” said Dergunova.
