Ukrainian government plans to impose taxes on Skype users

Ukrainian government plans to impose taxes on Skype users

Peter Yatsuk, the head of the Ukrainian National Commission for Communication and Information, said that government has intent to impose taxes on the use of instant messaging and video services, including Skype.

Yatsuk claims that monetization of the access to these services will give the state a reasonable profit. “Service providers want and have right to make profit from data transfers among Internet applications. This is natural. Nowadays networks are used as transits. As a result, companies are not eager to upgrade them,” he noted.

The head of the National Commission also said that Ukrainian government will develop regulations to handle the access to such services. We are at the first stage – we are just opening the door. And we do not know what is behind it, Yatsuk claimed.

In addition, Yatsuk said that Commission would negotiate with both operators of the telecommunication market and Internet service providers.

The head of the Commission brought Skype as a vivid example. For three years of its existence Skype has become a company with a billion asset value. This company, one might say, is virtual. Besides the personnel and equipment, the core value of Skype is based on software, Yatsuk said.
