The Government of Ukraine has decided to place the State Fiscal Service under the authority of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine. Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk said this during the presentation of the institutional reform of the SFS on Wednesday, June 24.

The Prime Minister has emphasized that he welcomes the reorganization model of the SFS, provided by Finance Minister of Ukraine Natalie Jaresko and SFS Chairman Roman Nasirov. However, he has stressed the importance of "practical steps and consequences of this reorganization."

He has recalled that the previous management of the State Fiscal Service failed to meet the tasks assigned by the PM for half a year: "That is why the Government launched an investigation and the entire leadership of the SFS has been removed and replaced."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk has pointed out that we do not have another six months for the implementation of changes to the SFS: "You have three months so that taxpayers could feel a new and qualitative tax culture, which will be implemented by the State Fiscal Services leadership."

The Prime Minister has stressed the need to change not only the leadership, "There are a lot of changes on the top, but they do not reach the local level, because the same rules, the same people, the same corruption remain there."
