Signed into effect by President Putin on 3 August, the law’s new 20% rate applies to goods, works, and services, as well as property rights sold or transferred.

There is a reduced rate of 10% applicable to some categories such as food and domestic air transportation. There is also a zero rate applicable to domestic air transportation services, passengers, and luggage if the point of departure or destination is in the Far Eastern Federal District.
In addition, sale of a company will be subject to a VAT rate of 16.67%, up from 15.25%.
