Bill No. 8282 amending the Tax Code of Ukraine was registered in parliament on April 18. Its authors are 19 lawmakers from various parliamentary factions.

According to an explanatory note to the bill, a reduction in the incomes of livestock enterprises with a simultaneous increase in the tax burden on them leads to a decrease in the number of cattle, production, further reduction in consumption and production of dairy products.

According to the document, at the end of the first quarter of 2018 the average market price for "extra" milk was UAH 9.56 per kg (including VAT).

In general, the range varies between UAH 8.76-9.80 per kg. The price for premium milk is UAH 8-9.50 per kg and the first grade - an average of UAH 8.84 per kg.
