As reported in the survey of Ukraine’s top private taxpayers done by BUSINESS magazine. The first place was awarded to Ihor Kolomoiskyi, followed by Rinat Akhmetov, Gennady Boutkevitch, Vyacheslav Boguslayev and Nikolay Zlochevskyi.
BUSINESS did calculations based on the report of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine – Ukraine’s top-100 taxpayers by the amount of taxes paid to the consolidated budget of Ukraine as of October 1, 2016.
“These hundred companies generate almost half of total state revenues: UAH 161.5 bln. out of UAH 367.1 bln. If we exclude state revenues coming from public sector and international companies, a share of Ukrainian private businesses will account to one third of the total amount – UAH 49.4 billion. Top taxpayers who paid billions to the Ukraine’s budget are Ihor Kolomoiskyi, Rinat Akhmetov, Gennady Boutkevitch, Vyacheslav Boguslayev, Nikolay Zlochevskyi, Natalia Bondareva, Alexander and Galina Gerega, Alexander Slobodyan. Ten businessmen alone generate over 13% of the state budget”, reported BUSINESS.
Thus, according to the BUSINESS survey, Nikolay Zlochevskyi’s companies paid about UAH 1.62 billion to the state budget of Ukraine (following the results of January-September 2016) among 100 Ukraine’s largest taxpayers, which is 3.3% of total state revenues among Ukrainian private companies.
Overall, over the past two years, Burisma Group companies paid around UAH 6 billion to the state budget of all levels.
“I am glad that Burisma’s impact on the Ukrainian state budget was mentioned in the survey. Burisma produces billions of cubic meters of gas, pays billions hryvnias to the State budget and invests billions in gas production. We are going to continue following this very strategy”, commented Nikolay Zlochevskyi.
