MOSCOW, February 25 – RIA Novosti. Domestic and transnational IT companies that make money in the Russian jurisdiction must be equalized in terms of the tax burden, a member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, Chairman of the Russian Union of Taxpayers Artem Kiryanov expressed this position. “Today there is an absolutely clear bias in relation to those companies that have Russian roots, are registered in the Russian jurisdiction and work under Russian law, and those companies that do not provide invoices for their actions do not pay taxes, “he said at the roundtable” Dialogue with the digital giant “: why open representative offices of foreign IT companies “.
Foreign platforms, as the public figure noted with reference to open data, receive at least 50% of digital advertising in Russia, the total volume of which in 2020 amounted to 178 billion rubles.
“Our task is to become one of the world leaders in IT, and there are certain prerequisites for this … But this tax imbalance creates such tough, unequal competitive conditions … We must do the best we can to implement, implement equalization of rights and tax burden for Russian and transnational corporations, “Kiryanov added.
According to a member of the RF OP, the conversation that it is time to move to taxation according to the principle “on whom they earn” is being held in many countries. And multinational companies must take into account the legislation in force in all territories where their activities are carried out. “As taxpayers, we are extremely interested in that foreign companies pay income tax, pay taxes in full from those on whom they earn in the Russian jurisdiction, and that would be honest and fair, “Kiryanov said.
