Summer is coming to an end; the first autumn month is ahead. Along with September, important changes will come and directly affect the lives of Ukrainians. Let's talk about them in more detail.
New study rules
We are talking about adjusting training, given that Covid-19 has not gone anywhere. We have already written in detail about how kids will study in schools from September 1.
Now we will note the main thing.
First. According to the Minister of Education Serhiy Shkarlet, distance learning in schools can be introduced in those areas that fall into the red, orange, yellow quarantine zones.
So far, as you know, all regions of the country are in the green quarantine zone.
Second. If at least 80% of school personnel are vaccinated, such an educational institution will be able to accept children even in the red zone.
If less than 20% of the staff are vaccinated, then such a school will be quarantined when moving from the green to another quarantine zone.
Third. Various celebrations are optional. How to conduct and whether to conduct at all is the prerogative of the administration of a particular school.
Voluntary income declaration
On September 1, a "voluntary-declarative" reform will start.
The essence is as follows: Ukrainians will be able to voluntarily declare their income and pay taxes on it. According to law No. 1539-9 on tax amnesty, citizens will be able to submit a one-time declaration with information about assets from which taxes and fees have not been paid until January 1, 2021.
"Citizens who take advantage of this opportunity will be able to calmly dispose of their assets. For them it will be a pure financial history. Moreover, for the citizens who have declared assets and paid a fee from them, the state guarantees exemption from liability for violation of tax and currency legislation," writes Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko.
At the same time, the minister noted that not everyone has the right to voluntary declaration. In particular, assets obtained as a result of criminal offenses, including bribe-taking, as well as assets in the accounts of an aggressor country or originating from such a country, are not subject to declaration.
Citizens who have paid taxes on all income do not need to submit a tax return. It is also possible not to declare assets (housing, car and land) received under donation agreements or inheritance.
Debt benefits for IDPs from Donbas and Crimea
On September 5, the Law "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine" On Ensuring the Rights and Freedoms of Internally Displaced Persons "comes into force.
Its essence: liberation of migrants "from the negative consequences of non-fulfillment of monetary obligations under credit agreements and loan agreements."
That is, for improper fulfillment by migrants of obligations under credit agreements:
no forfeit (fine, penalty) is charged,
there is no liability in the form of payment of the amount of debt,
no other property sanctions are applied.
The provisions of the document relate to loan agreements concluded before February 20, 2014 with internally displaced persons from the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol and before April 14, 2014 - for agreements with IDPs from the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as the territory of the ATO / JFO ...
Electronic sick leave document
From September 1, Ukraine was supposed to switch to e-sick leave. But the transition was delayed at least until October.
