Avdiivka Coke paid UAH 49 million in taxes in 2013

13 March 2014

Metinvest Group's Avdiivka Coke Plant paid UAH 49.0 million in income and environmental taxes, land fees and other payments to Avdiivka in 2013, which amounted to 63.1% of income into Avdiivka's budget.

 The plant was again the largest taxpayer in Avdiivka. Avdiivka Coke paid UAH 49.8 million to Avdiivka in 2012.

 "Today the steelmaking industry throughout the world is stagnating,” said Musa Magomedov, Avdiivka Coke’s general director. “Avdiivka Coke workers continue to work diligently and hard since they understand their responsibility to the town. The plant's daily output is now up to 10,000 tons of bulk coke. This has enabled the repair of hospitals, schools and kindergartens; renewal of infrastructure in the town; and payment of salaries to state employees, pensions and other social payments."

 Yuriy Cherkasov, Avdiivka's mayor, agreed, "Avdiivka's budget is small. Thus, the contribution of Avdiivka Coke cannot be overestimated. Budgetary expenditures amounted to UAH 121.1 million in 2013 and priority was given to financing social projects. UAH 56.7 million was paid in salaries to state employees.

 The plant is the largest employer in Avdiivka. Its contributions covered 63% of salary payments to municipal employees last year.
