"Crimea-non-resident" as part of the divorce proceedings with Ukraine?


The National Bank made a “royal gift” to the residents of the Crimea: recognized them as citizens of another country - non-residents. The relevant resolution appeared on the NBU website a few days ago and caused a stir in the press. However, as often happens, everyone paid attention to minor issues: the ban on deposits in rubles, the restriction of remittances, etc. But the most important question is not money, but how to sell the Crimean property, an apartment, for example: for citizens of Ukraine and for non-residents conditions are noticeably different ...

The decree of the National Bank with a catchy name “On the application of certain norms of currency legislation during the temporary occupation regime on the territory of the free economic zone Crimea” states that banking operations with persons who have a residence permit on the peninsula will be regarded as operations with non-residents, and investment operations as operations with foreign investors. And contracts concluded between legal entities of the Crimea and companies registered or located in the rest of Ukraine will be considered foreign trade.

What does this mean? Well, let's say, there is a chain of stores that has either a supplier in the Crimea, or a marketplace (and the supplier is here). Previously, they worked as two business entities of Ukraine: for example, Crimeans sold wine, bought it and sold it through the trade network.

Now this simple transaction falls under currency control. To buy a batch of wine, the Ukrainian store will first have to file an application for the purchase of currency (dollar or ruble) with banks, then transfer to the special account the amount of funds in hryvnia, which will be enough to buy the planned volume of ruble or dollar. And if a payment is received from a Crimean company (again, in rubles or hard currency), the Ukrainian partner should be obliged to sell the received funds in a foreign exchange auction. How do those who trade with foreign countries. In addition, the rate of settlements up to 90 days now extends to trading with the Crimea between Ukrainian and local business structures.

Some interesting innovations concern those who have property in the Crimea - a summer house, an apartment, a yacht, and so on. As stated in the resolution of the National Bank of Ukraine, now “residents make transfers in foreign currency and hryvnia in favor of the subjects of Crimea in order to pay obligations related to the property located in the Crimea on the basis of documents confirming the ownership of such property. As well as documents confirming the existence of grounds for payment of obligations. For example, bills from the housing office.

This, in turn, forces individuals who have a tax address in the rest of Ukraine to declare residential real estate owned by them and located in the territory of the FEZ "Crimea". Hello, to all businessmen, deputies, officials and just ordinary corrupt officials. All of them will have to light the Crimean property. Otherwise you will not be able to pay for the light, water or parking of the yacht.

By the way, on the property lawyers have a whole series of questions at once. The hitch is that if you sell a house, according to Russian law, you will have to pay 30% of the property value against tax for non-residents. For our citizens - this is a disadvantage.

Therefore, many were in a hurry to register their right to property in the Russian registry. Others, relying on the current “law of occupation”, quietly reissued their Crimean housing in the mainland of Ukraine. And we have these transactions are recognized and registered by notaries. And this applies both to those who had a Crimean registration, and those who did not.

Moreover, in order to make it more profitable to sell property or business, legal entities with a location in Crimea were registered in the Russian register (Unified State Register), but at the same time they were also kept in the register of legal entities in Ukraine. And make deals where it was more profitable.

Now, after the recognition of the FEZ of Crimea as a territory of non-residents, it will be difficult to get rid of the Crimean property according to our laws. Accordingly, selling, say, a house, you may have to pay a Ukrainian tax on non-residents - 17%.

Nobody can say anything exactly for now, because the law “On Temporary Occupation” and the decree of the National Bank enter into a clear discord. And, as they say, the whole question is in the interpretation of these documents by the courts and responsible persons.

Lawyer Alexander Motorny said that the National Bank, when adopting this resolution, was thinking about its own, about money, and was not going to touch on property issues. However, in the existing legal field, everything is so confusing and contradictory that any careless movement of regulatory bodies can bring additional problems to entrepreneurs.

According to him, do not forget that the business associated with the Crimea, and so the head is spinning from the formal action on the territory of the peninsula at the same time the legislation of Ukraine and the legislation of the Russian Federation. At the same time, he notes the trend of gradual “cutting off the umbilical cord” connecting the Crimea and the mainland.

“First there was the non-recognition by Ukraine of any documents issued by the authorities or persons created in the Crimea according to the legislation of the Russian Federation. Then the permission (in the “law on occupation”) not to pay mandatory taxes and fees to the Ukrainian budget. Today Crimeans have become non-residents. It seems that the authorities consciously or “subconsciously” conduct a gradual divorce proceedings with the Crimea. In political messages, the return of the territory is declared sooner or later, but legal steps indicate movement in a completely different direction, ”the lawyer believes.

          It seems not quite so. Electrons in nature are localized. And the principle of uncertainty says that it is impossible to accurately measure both the coordinate and momentum of a particle at the same time, which translates into the fact that it is impossible to predict the probability of an electron at a given point in space with a predetermined accuracy. Those. we +/- know that he is right here somewhere. But how much these +/- mean - only God knows. Somehow I repent ... what

      It would not hurt to adopt such a practice for all governors.

      Cockroaches are populated ...
      excerpt from the news today:
      If the amount of embezzlement is more than 50 million rubles, the sentence can range from 10 years to life imprisonment. Also, the deputies propose to supplement Article 285.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Theft of funds from state non-budgetary funds").

      I will notice under the USSR - for the theft of a bag of crushed grain on a collective farm, TERM 3 years (not conditional)

    Slowly Kiev, willingly or not, is trying to legitimize the secession of Crimea. and it is also happening with Donbass. The Ministry of Education of Ukraine has already declared those teachers of Lugansk and Donetsk universities who have not left the "occupied" territory traitors to the Motherland; it is planned to deprive them of their scientific degrees and titles for this. Pensions and benefits have also been stopped. Thus, Kiev declares: you are not our citizens, you are not under our jurisdiction, we refuse you!

    Yes, it doesn't mean anything yet. It is in vain to consider which article is an "act of recognition"
    No, these are all acts aimed at working with them at least somehow in the logic of the market. Crimea is not PMR for Ukraine. Therefore, everyone is trying to fix something.
    But about the "umbilical cord of the Crimea" I will note that "mom" controls the umbilical cord. And without the umbilical cord Crimea cannot be.
    Yes, and I hope it is mutually beneficial - after all, in Crimea, there is still a set of "ONLI UKRAIN" from goods / products and other things.
    I caught myself thinking that the situation is reminiscent of the problems of supplying the Crimea when the RSFR was through the Ukrainian SSR. Only much more complicated and dangerous.
    Instead of a naval base, Ukraine now has 2 million Russians (although they are not all Russians, most have not changed or thrown away Ukraine’s passport) as hostages.
    And that's right, Ukraine will be the last to recognize the transition. That is never.
    They would recognize - they would establish conscientious commissions in all areas (which was necessary in March for a civilized divorce), and so ... Trade brings something, they give Crimea food to drink. So far, the status quo. Until the next confrontation.

      A new article by Ipatiev has been released. In full here: What is the conclusion we Russian people have to make? The simplest - against Russia and the Russian people, according to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill, there is an ongoing war of survival, and we must be stronger than ever today. They are strong in their spirit, their Orthodox faith, because we can oppose the king of Jerusalem to only God, Jesus Christ and his Most Holy Mother, who guard Russia from birth. Russia and the Russian people cannot oppose anything other than their fiery faith, and it is not necessary, because faith exalts a person, making him stronger and wiser, conquering untold hordes of the enemy under him. You need to understand that mankind has entered the most implacable, bloodiest and most destructive war - a spiritual one, which is no equal, and will never be, because the loser in it will disappear forever, will lose not only itself, but also its entire family. There are no prisoners, there are no sick and crippled, here only yes - yes, no - no, one is taken, and the other is left. Therefore, our strength is in truth, and truth is always in faith, because there is no truth in people, but it is in God. And the future of Russia will not be rich in the welfare of the country and people, but in God, creating a genuine Empire of the Russian spirit, the Russian Orthodox faith, against which all the "nightingale" is just roadside dust.

        and without an article it’s clear - a war has long been going on against Russians, Slavs, and generally against pro-Orthodoxy. It’s just that we didn’t notice it before, but with the situation in dill, all this crawled to the surface and people began to realize that there was not just a war in the Donbas, but the destruction of the Slavic people, and Ukrainians were also Slavs, but not Galicians.

    Firtash probably also does not want to admit that Crimea is Russia. The day before yesterday they brought soda from Krasnoperekopsk to our factory, and what I see, on bags and on a piece of paper that was sewn in a bag to bag: AR Crimea Ukraine, produced on 24.10.2014. It was also in May, well, I thought that little time had passed, were there old stocks of containers and all kinds of papers printed with a reserve not to throw them away, but not for six months of these stocks? request belay
