On January 31, at the meeting of the Ukrainian government, it was decided to exclude 5 countries from the list of offshore companies, namely Estonia, Latvia, Georgia, Malta and Hungary.
We remind that on January 19, the Ministry of Finance of Latvia announced that the inclusion of this country in the list of offshore zones was unreasonable.
Earlier, Ukraine included Estonia in the list without notification of the Estonian government, so the Prime Minister of the state Jüri Ratas reacted by a statement on the need to remove the jurisdiction immediately from the offshore list. It took place on January 26, during his meeting in Davos with the Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groysman and the Minister of Finance of Ukraine Aleksandr Danilyuk.
In total in 2017, Ukraine expanded the list of the countries, the operations with counterparties of which are subject to control in the administration of the law of transfer pricing, to 25 countries. Guadeloupe, Guatemala, French Guiana, the Commonwealth of Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Estonia, Iran, Cuba, Laos, Latvia, Lebanon, Mauritius, Malta, Morocco, Monaco, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Georgia and Hungary were added to the list. At the recent meeting, Latvia and Estonia called for their exclusion from the Ukrainian offshore list.
