It should be reminded that according to the amendments regarding the current legislation, as of the 1st of July 2019, the business entities that produce wholesale, retail and store the fuel must obtain licenses for such activity.
Such changes have been implemented in order to reduce the volume of the shadow fuel market, increase the tax revenues and improve the quality of petroleum products for the consumers.
The license is issued at the request of the business entity that should contain the attached documents, the list of which is determined by the Law of Ukraine as of December 19, 2005 №. 481/95-VR “On the state regulation regrading the production and turnover of ethyl alcohol, cognac, fruit alcohol, alcohol beverages and tobacco products”.
The State Fiscal Service of Ukraine has developed recommended application forms for obtaining such licenses for the convenience of business entities that were required to obtain licenses on the right to produce, store the fuel, as well as licenses on the retail and wholesale of the fuel starting from the 1st of July 2019.
