Budget Message of the President of the Russian Federation to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of May 24, 2005 on the Budget Policy in 2006

Contains main directions and guidelines of the budget policy for the year 2006. The most important task of the budget policy is still macroeconomy stability.

Emphasises that accounting and reporting for the purposes of taxation remain unjustifiably complicated, which is especially harmful for the medium and small business. Therefore, the finishing of the tax reform will require a special attention in 2005-2006. First and foremost, the barriers and norms will be removed violating neutrality of the value added tax and causing an unjustifiable withdrawal of resources from circulation with enterprises. In particular, the Parliament in the nearest future will have to switch over from 2006 to the common procedure of exemption from the value added tax in capital construction.

In profit taxation of organisations, expenses must include the costs of scientific research and design works, organisations must be able to include in expenses capital investments in the amount of 10% of the cost of purchased fixed assets, as well as carry over losses of the past years to the future periods.

The Tax Code must include the chapter on the local tax on immovable property. The taxpayers must get opportunity to draw up a respite or extension schedule for tax payments for up to one year directly in the tax body.
