Nina Iuzhanina, Head, Taxation & Customs Committee
Verkhovna Rada

Nina Iuzhanina was born on January 11, 1965. She is a graduate of Technological University of Podillia where she studied accounting and¬†entrepreneurial economics. Between 1983 and 2003, she worked at various companies as an accountant, chief accountant, and economist, and she headed the Auditing Directorate of the Kyiv Regional Tax Administration. From 2003 to 2014, she served as the audit director at European Auditing Group in Kyiv. On October 27, 2014, Nina Iuzhanina was elected to the Ukrainian Parliament on a party ticket from the Petro Poroshenko Block. On May 13, 2015, she was elected to head the Tax Committee of the Parliament. She is married and has a son. She resides in Kyiv. Legislative Initiatives Nina Iuzhanina has authored 126 legislative proposals. 38 of them have become laws. Her most known legislative initiative is to revamp the country’s entire tax system. In August of 2015 she introduced to the legislature a liberal tax reform which significantly lessens tax burdens on entrepreneurs and simplifies administration of taxes. The bill was co-authored by some 130 parliamentarians and contributed into by scores of professionals who volunteered their effort to this undertaking. It is the first time in the Ukrainian legislative history that a proposal to change tax laws came from the members of the Parliament and not the Ministry of Finance. The proposal was registered as bill 3357 on October 26, 2015 and has later become known as “Iuzhanina liberal tax reform.” The philosophy of the change in the darft law lies in understanding that lowering taxes and simplifying their administration would allow Ukrainian business people to work honestly and to take their businesses out of the shadows. This will in turn reignite the Ukrainian economy and encourage growth. The current national fiscal service would also need to be reformed and transformed into service-oriented governmental agency. On December of 2016 majority of initiatives which had been proclaimed in bill #3357 were included in the Law #1797-VIII “On amendments to the Taxation code (on improvement of investment climate)”
