- As part of the experiment, legal entities and individual entrepreneurs will be able to pay taxes, fees, insurance premiums, fines and penalties simultaneously by transferring a single payment.
- To participate in the experiment, an application must be submitted in April 2022. Prior to this, the applicant must reconcile the relevant accounts with the tax authorities.
