In recent years, car owners in the country sent to the landfill up to 4-6% of their used cars. But as the fleet grows rapidly, there will be more junk for decommissioning, and the quantitative content of each percent will increase. Hence the decision to “ sew up” the prepayment for the future processing of auto junk into the selling price of a car, in order to be guaranteed to receive funds for unavoidable utilization costs. This is done in many countries.
This is the main reason for the introduction of a recycling tax (we will call a spade a spade). However, to be completely honest, as the head of the Russian automobile industry specified, there is another. The state budget will feel tension as, after joining the WTO, Russia will be obliged to reduce the rates of import duties and other charges. The introduction of recycling will help the treasury not to become impoverished.
Alexey Rakhmanov drew attention: in the already adopted decision on the disposal collection, only the fundamental motives and principles of its collection are indicated. But neither the size of the rates, nor the criteria for calculating the amounts are determined. For example, the information that the “advance payment” for the utilization of Russian Focus Ford Focus will be 20 thousand rubles, and for the same machine assembled abroad, 117 thousand rubles, does not correspond to reality.
There are no exact figures for each model yet - a draft government decree on this subject will only be discussed. The speaker drew attention: the cabinet does not set a goal to increase the tax burden on the price of cars, regardless of whether they are assembled domestically or imported.
Is it possible to charge later, when the death hour strikes for a car? A company working abroad may refuse to utilize products imported into the Russian Federation without consequences for itself - it is outside the Russian legal field. Shifting this responsibility to a distributor or dealer is not a good idea. Others exist for a short time: burst - and the bribes are smooth.
