Reporting on state compensation - to submit by January 15

By January 15, farms that have received reimbursement of the value of breeding animals and livestock and grain facilities must submit to the Ministry of Economy the appropriate form of information about the business entity.

According to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine 107, such reporting is submitted within two (for breeding animals) or three (for objects) years after receiving the reimbursement and does NOT apply to farms that were submitted only for reimbursement of sperm products.

Completed forms of information in paper form must be sent by 15.01.2021 to 01008, Kyiv, Ukraine, Hrushevskoho Street, 12/2

….Business entities shall submit information on the available livestock as of January 1 of the current year, including livestock, the value of which has been partially reimbursed, by January 15 of each year within two years after receiving the budget funds of the Ministry of Economy.
