In the first quarter of 2011 Lvivska Brewery, the branch of PJSC Slavutich Brewery, transfered 1.7 million UAH of taxes and charges to the budget. So one of the leading taxpayers in the region continues to finance the budget sector of its native city faithfully in accordance with tax legislation.
Thus, the local treasury was replenished with funds from payment of individual income tax which the enterprise pays for each of its employee, income tax (in terms of consolidated tax), fees for water use and other prescribed taxes and charges. In addition, the municipal budget received rent for the land on which the enterprise is located. In general, in the 1st quarter of 2011 Lvivska Brewery, the branch of PJSC Slavutich Brewery, paid local taxes and charges 2 times more than during the same period in 2010.
It is important to note that according to the Budget Code of Ukraine, VAT, excise duties, income taxes are not local taxes but state taxes which remain at the disposal of the city. The difference lies in the fact through which treasury accounts money come to the state budget, and this fact depends on the place of basic registration of the enterprise. The amounts of VAT and excise tax are transferred to the state budget through the State Tax Inspectorate and the Treasury in Zaporizhzhya (in the place of basic registration of the enterprise).
Thus all taxes and charges which the brewery has paid earlier to the state and local budgets continue to be paid fully.
It should be reminded that on January 17, 2011 the process of consolidating assets of Carlsberg Group in Ukraine was completed. As a result OJSC Lvivska Brewery became part of PJSC Slavutich Brewery.
Roman Golovnya, Acting Director at Lvivska Brewery, the branch of PJSC Slavutich Brewery: "Lvivska Brewery has always been and remains to be an enterprise of Lviv first of all. We take an active part in the cultural and social life of the city. And of course we continue to honor all obligations to the city as an employer and a taxpayer. It is extremely important to us that all citizens of the region including representatives of the municipal authorities understood this. Regardless of where our enterprise is registered the state budget continues to receive the taxes which the brewery is obliged to pay according to the law for the benefit of the citizens of Lviv".
