    Finance 7 April 2023 1628

    From May 1, 2023, when individuals included in the "Unified Register of Social Protection" purchase some goods at retail facilities, instead of cashback in the amount of 1% of the purchase amount, the amount of VAT paid in the amount of 12% is refunded.

    List of goods for which VAT is refunded:

    • Sheep meat
    • Poultry meat
    • Beef
    • Eggs
    • Vegetable oil

    According to the press service of the State Tax Committee, in order to return VAT, a consumer included in the "Unified Register of Social Protection" must download the Soliq mobile application, register using FACE ID and scan the QR code of the purchase receipt in the application.

    When returning VAT, it is taken into account:

    • is the purchased product included in the list of goods for which VAT is subject to refund;
    • is the buyer included in the "Unified Register of Social Protection";
    • whether the entrepreneur is registered as a VAT payer.

    If the consumer included in the register:

    • registers a receipt in which, along with the goods for which VAT is subject to refund, there are other types of goods, then for goods with VAT he receives a refund of 12% VAT, and for other goods - 1% cashback;
    • purchases goods for which VAT is subject to refund from a business entity that is not a VAT payer, then 1% of the cashback is returned to him.

    The VAT amount will be paid via the Soliq mobile app after the 25th day of the month following the month in which the receipt is registered.
