The main change: since 2018, companies will again pay a tax on movable property.
Since January 1st, it is necessary to pay property taxes under the new rules. Legislators remove from NK a privilege on movable fixed assets. The right to introduce it on its territory is transferred to the regional authorities.

The exception is the fixed assets that the organization received as a result of liquidation, reorganization or from interdependent companies and individuals.
Under the new rules, with movable fixed assets it is necessary to pay tax at the rate of 1.1 percent. Regional authorities can reduce it and introduce incentives. For example, to exempt from tax highly efficient equipment or movable property, from the date of issue of which was no more than three years.
