In Ukraine, two amendments to the Tax and Customs Codes on state support for cinematography in Ukraine entered into force on December 3. They were published in the official newspaper The Voice of Ukraine on Saturday.

Cinematography was granted a remission of VAT taxation until January 1, 2023 when it comes to the production of national films and foreign films voiced in Ukrainian, works on making archives of national films and films created on the territory of Ukraine. This also applies to replication of national and foreign films voiced in Ukrainian; dubbing or voice-сover of films in Ukrainian, as well as works on the preservation and restoration of the national cinematographic heritage.  

Temporary public service broadcasters are temporarily exempted from VAT when demonstrating or distributing national films.

Producers of Ukrainian films until January 1, 2023 will be able to import into Ukraine a number of goods without paying duty.
