State Duma deputies adopted in the second reading a draft law supplementing the Tax Code with the chapter "Trade tax". From July 1, 2015, such fees are allowed to be introduced in the cities of federal significance, that is, in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Sevastopol. But for now they will only affect Moscow trade, although it was originally planned to introduce them for a wide range of businessmen.
In accordance with the bill, new fees will be levied by trade organizations and individual entrepreneurs engaged in trade, with the exception of those who find it more profitable to buy a patent.
It will be necessary to pay trade fees once a quarter at a rate determined by the authorities of the municipalities, which may vary depending on which part of the city the trade is conducted and the characteristics of the objects of the trade. In this case, the rate of collection should not exceed the amount of tax levied on the patent system of taxation, but can be reduced up to zero.
The cost of a retail trade patent in Moscow is 6% of the maximum potential income (2 million rubles) from one outlet per year. Thus, the tax amount for the trading floor is less than 50 sq. m is 120 thousand rubles. per year, or 30 thousand rubles. in the quarter.
For objects of a stationary trading network with a sales area of 50 sq. m and more, the collection rate is set per 1 sq. m of sales area per quarter and at the same time cannot exceed the amount of tax levies for retailers with floor space less than 50 sq. m, that is, 30 thousand rubles. in the quarter. Thus, the tax will amount to 600 rubles. per sq. m per quarter.
