Russians will be provided with cheap fruit


The value added tax (VAT) for fruit can be lowered to 10 percent. Such idea was supported by the president Vladimir Putin, TASS reports. It has to lead to reduction of prices for final buyers. The Deputy Prime Minister and the former Minister of Agriculture Alexey Gordeev told about approval of the president. "Serious decisions were made, in particular, the question which was raised repeatedly - it is to make the preferential VAT for fruit, ten-percentage. The president supported this decision" — the official noted. According to him, the head of state approved one more measure of support of landowners — cancellation of the VAT from subsidies. Otherwise the policy of the state would be illogical, Gordeev told. In July the State Duma adopted the law on increase since 2019 of the VAT from 18 to 20 percent. At the same time on some types of goods and services preferential rates will remain. Among them there are vegetables, some species of fish and seafood, bread, flour, grain and pasta.
