Additional Federal tax incentives for the implementation of priority investment projects is not required, benefits are possible at the regional level, said Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Ilya Trunin on the sidelines of Msfinforma.

«I bill (of preferences for priority investment projects — ed.) have not seen, I don’t think we need any additional preferences. We now have created plenty of all sorts of instruments aimed at supporting investment: THOR can create, you can participate in a regional investment project, investment incentive to. It is impossible to think of anything else», he said.

He finds it strange the idea of the non-proliferation of tax law changes that will be made during the period of validity of agreements with companies on the implementation of priority investment projects.

«Traditionally, we argue against this because it erodes the tax system. Moreover, it is not clear, on the territory of the same state will act in a different tax rules,» he said.

«If to speak about the agreement, then apply the tools of tax rates. I think it makes sense for regional investment projects. I can’t imagine how one plant will pay income tax on the same rules, one for the other. It’s ineffective,» he continued.

According to him, important stability conditions, but we must formulate some. «We often change the rates of excise duties, it is hardly possible to fix on some individual projects. Change, improve the rules of calculation of taxes,» — said the Deputy Minister. Tax rates and tax incentives can be envisaged, in his opinion, the implementation of regional investment projects.

«To ensure that three years later, the subject changes his mind when there came another Governor, that, probably, should consider,» — said Trunin.
