Tetiana Ostrikova: “Within a year, Ukrainians will be able to import electric vehicles from abroad without paying taxes”

Yesterday, during the introduction of amendments to the Tax Code it was decided that within a year – until January 1, 2019 – import and delivery of cars equipped with electric motors would be exempted from VAT and excise tax.

“There is no production of electric motors or electric cars in Ukraine yet; therefore temporarily, so far for a year, their import will be exempted from taxation,” explains Tetiana Ostrikova, MP representing Samopomich faction, member of the Tax and Customs Policy Committee of the parliament.

At the same time, she adds, the committee is also developing a bill that will take into account and stimulate the development of both service stations and charging stations and the production of batteries for electric cars, as well as will provide conditions for the creation of their production in Ukraine
