Protests against the return of the single social tax, but for the single social payment for business

KRASNOYARSK, February 20, the Ministry of economic development does not support the introduction of a single social tax instead of insurance payments in funds, but believes that the payment business needs to deploy one in a single fiscal authority, said Deputy economic development Minister Oleg Fomichev at the Krasnoyarsk economic forum.

“We believe that in the current system of social transfers through the creation of a single body, a single administrator of the income on the basis of the Ministry of Finance is nearly complete, to make sure that the business was convenient and didn’t have to send payments in separate bodies. That is, for business in fact the payment will be one, and fiscal authority to distribute funds to different funds. Necessary or not just to unite, calling the single tax, most likely, no,” he said.

Federal tax service (FTS) will assume administration of all insurance premiums. Thus on the basis of the Federal tax service will create a single centre for the administration of tax and non-tax payments, which will also include FCS and Rosalkogolregulirovanie. The question of the transfer of the Federal tax service functions of administration of insurance contributions had been discussed since 2013, but still there was no solution. Supervising tax service, the Ministry of Finance has consistently advocated the transfer of functions, and the FIU who oversees the social block of the government – against. The main argument of the Ministry of Finance in favor of transferring contributions – General simplification of the system of administration of payments and savings of budget expenditures. In turn, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets insisted that such a transfer would destroy the system of insurance payments.

Earlier, President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the transition of the Federal alcohol market regulatory service and the Federal customs service under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Finance. At the beginning of December 2015 at state of the nation address the President set the task to create a system of unified administration customs, tax and other government payments.

Contributions to the Pension Fund (RPF) shall be paid by employers from the salary Fund. Now for salaries to 796 thousand rubles a year rate is 22% and plus 10% with higher earnings. In the social insurance Fund – 2,9% of salary up to 718 thousand and zero for incomes above that amount. For contributions to the health insurance Fund, a flat scale is 5.1% with any wages. The total rate of premium is 30% and 15.1% for income in excess of the threshold.

Earlier it was reported that the Federal tax service, which has recently transferred administration of all contributions, proposes to establish a single payment: basis for payment of contributions should be unified, the payment be made to the Federal tax service, which then distributes the funds. A uniform contribution rate must be such that no increased fiscal burden, there are plans to make it one.
