According to the document, in 2016, 2017 and 2018 the duties on alcohol will be increased by 15% and duties on tobacco – by 20%.
The electronic fuel sale administration system that includes the introduction of the excise document as a mandatory electronic document for all transactions on the sale of fuel on the domestic market would be introduced.
