The Ministry of Finance abandoned initiatives to introduce 30% personal income tax for remote employees

The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation has abandoned the idea of ​​changing the rules for taxing the income of relocated Russians, whom Russian employers have officially transferred to a remote location.

In July 2022, the first draft of the bill was presented. The document provided that Russian employers would withhold 13-15% of personal income tax, depending on the amount of income from the salary of remote workers, while they are residents of the Russian Federation. And as soon as they lose their residency – 30%.

Now the Ministry of Finance has excluded from the finalized document the provision that the employer must collect personal income tax from payments to employees who officially work remotely abroad. [Интерфакс]
