The VAT rate of 0% will also be preserved. In addition, in the document of the government suggests to lower insurance premiums. If the law adopts discount rate pension insurance, it will be fixed at the rate of 22 percent: the contributions won’t be increased up to 26 percent. The aggregate rate of insurance premiums paid to state extra-budgetary funds will also be reduced from 34 to 30 percent.
