Russia is close to introducing a digital currency fee bill after the proposal was initially approved by the Russian parliament.
The Russian state news agency announced that the State Duma and the House of Representatives of Public Authority approved on Wednesday a bill on computerized money charges.
The bill has long been anticipated and is making corrections to the current government fee law.
The proposed law distinguishes digital currencies, for example, Bitcoin as being exclusive while making not declaring benefits from exchanging cryptocurrencies a mistake.
This includes residents of the country and unfamiliar residents, just like the local and international associations present in Russia.
The new legislation acquires a prerequisite with digital currency exchange reports if their total value, for both active and active exchanges, exceeds 500,000 rubles per year.
It is acceptable for this value to be determined based on the cost of the cryptocurrency market, however the specific system for this was not specified.
Late or false disclosure is based on a fine of up to 10% of the largest total amount for one set of exchanges, whether close or active.
The proposal additionally includes punitive expenses of up to 30% of the duty neglected in the event of no installment or underpayment of the evaluation.
On a more affirming note for long-term Bitcoin owners, the claim that digital forms of money are an unpaid fit because they do not contain any exchanges.
However, the specific system for monitoring exchanges is not entirely clear.
According to the paper that goes with the bill, the new legislation plans to tackle tax evasion, tax evasion, and other criminal operations.
The bill is in the possession of the Parliament's Budget and Tax Committee so far prior to its subsequent consideration, which should submit amendments to the reports before March.
Despite the legislation isolated on computerized accounts that occurred in January that prevented locals from making installments in cryptocurrencies of money, the legal structure of Russia actually suffers from a lack of clear meaning of terms, for example, "digital currencies". Or "advanced monetary standards".
This further complicates the guidelines for digital forms of money in Russia.
