In recent months, more than 20 thousand new FLPs have been opened.
The number of domestic enterprises that completely stopped their activities has decreased from 32% to 17% since the beginning of the war.
Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced this during a government meeting.
“Deregulation, tax cuts, 0% loans, assistance with logistics – all this allowed a significant part of the business to return to work. The number of enterprises that completely stopped their activities has almost halved compared to the outbreak of hostilities – from 32 to 17%. Over 20,000 new sole proprietors have been opened in recent months, which actually corresponds to the figures for 2021,” he said.
Shmygal said that more than 215 thousand enterprises have chosen to switch to a new tax system, according to which the rate is only 2%. These are more than 44 thousand legal entities and 173 thousand individual entrepreneurs.
“Thanks to the expansion of lending programs at 0%, we are seeing a significant increase in lending, including for investment purposes. Since February 24 this year, almost 6,000 businesses across the country have taken advantage of this program, and the total amount of lending amounted to UAH 20.5 billion” added the Prime Minister.
