Finance Minister Oleksandr Danyliuk stated this at a press conference on the ministry's achievements in 2017 and plans for the future, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"The launch of the transparent VAT refund register was one of the greatest anti-corruption achievements of the Finance Ministry over this year. During the operation of the new system, UAH 83.2 billion has been reimbursed," said Danyliuk.
As Ukrinform reported, on April 1, 2017, the electronic register of applications on VAT refunds from the budget was put into operation. VAT refunds are paid transparently without any failures.
