The number of payers of professional income tax in the capital as of March 1, 2024 exceeded 1.6 million people. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov.

“17 percent of all self-employed people registered in Russia work in Moscow—more than 1.6 million people. Since January of this year, their number has increased by 46 thousand, which indicates attractive conditions for doing business in the city. The income of the capital’s self-employed since the beginning of this tax regime on January 1, 2019 amounted to more than a trillion rubles. Moreover, in the first two months of 2024 alone, they earned over 55 billion rubles,” said Vladimir Efimov.

Professional income tax is required by citizens who work for themselves and do not hire employees. The advantages of this form of small business are ease of registration, automated transmission of information about income received, no obligation to provide reports and use cash registers.

According to Department of Economic Policy and Development of Moscow, the most popular types of activities among self-employed people who indicated them during registration are passenger transportation, delivery, apartment rental, advertising and marketing, construction, and tutoring.

In January-February 2024, professional income taxpayers issued 10.7 million checks to clients. The average check size by March 1 increased by 16 percent compared to March 1, 2023 and amounted to 3,336 rubles.

Self-employed people transferred 2.2 billion rubles to the Moscow budget – 49 percent more than in the same period last year. And during the entire period of operation of this tax regime, more than 26 billion rubles were received from them into the treasury.
