Customs revenues reach record high of UAH 30 bln in Oct – Fiscal service
Customs revenues in Ukraine in October 2017 reached a record high of UAH 30 billion, which is UAH 5.3 billion higher than the target figure and 37.3% higher than in October 2016, the State Fiscal Service has said.
According to the Fiscal Service, the customs service transferred UAH 253.62 billion to the national budget, which exceeds the planned figures by 12%.
"This allows the Fiscal Service to fulfill its obligations to finance the repairs and reconstruction of the road infrastructure of Ukraine. As part of the experiment, since the beginning of the year customs services have already transferred UAH 10.2 billion. Only in October UAH 1.86 billion should be used for road repairs in the regions, which is another record figure for the ten months," the agency said.
Prior to this, the largest amount for road repairs in the framework of the experiment was used in May this year - UAH 1.83 billion.
The service said the Odesa customs service in mid-October fulfilled the annual plan: from the planned UAH 16.6 billion per year, as of November 1, 2017 it had transferred UAH 17.54 billion. The annual indicator was exceeded by 5%.
