Fee per ton: arguing about truckers and the government
He noted that the government made a decision to extend a preferential regime for charging 12-tinnikov for 2016. The original tariff was to be raised from March 1, the Ministry of transport, expected revenues from this fee in the amount of 40 billion rubles a year. In the fall of 2016, the government will again discuss the issue of raising or maintaining reduced rates.
“Depending on those decisions, whether they relate to 2016 or will flow in 2017, and will depend on the final volume of the collected funds. We see that the lost income will eventually build into the budget a little more than 20 billion rubles. But everything will depend on government decisions on extension or completion of this trial,” said the Minister.
