The Russian government has finalized a bill on new rules for paying personal income tax for citizens who have been working for Russian companies from abroad for more than six months. The new version has been sent to the State Duma, writes Kommersant.
The document proposes from 2024 to charge workers abroad who have lost their tax residence in the Russian Federation, 13-15%. According to the bill, remuneration received under an employment contract both with a Russian company and with a separate subdivision of a foreign company registered in the Russian Federation will also be considered as income from a source in the Russian Federation.
The bill was first introduced in April. Then it was proposed to raise the personal income tax rate to 30% after the loss of tax residence. The project was later withdrawn for review.
