In the framework of the working visit of Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk to London and his meeting with Prime Minister of Great Britain David Cameron, it was agreed to cooperate in reforming the Ukrainian economy, including reforming the state tax administration and customs. The Head of Government said at the session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Friday, 17 July.

He noted that the Government of Ukraine is negotiating on transferring management of some customs offices to a British company, which has experience in managing customs in some EU member states and other countries.

"We expect the negotiations to complete and the management of several customs offices to be transferred to a British company and show that we are not just a new culture of communication at customs, and that income of those customs, which are operated by the old corrupt Ukrainian officials, and those to be transferred to the management of a British company significantly differ, " Arseniy Yatsenyuk pointed out.

Moreover, he said that UK experts have to come to Ukraine in order to assist in conducting "full and comprehensive reform of the tax administration."

"I deem that the best way is to cut the State Fiscal Service by two times and accordingly increase salaries," he stressed.

Arsseniy Yatsenyuk also stressed the need to minimize contacts between taxpayer and tax administration as much as possible, "E-governance in the tax system. The less one talks to a tax official, the less bribery there is. It’s impossible to pass a bribe via Internet."
