Experts from the RF Ministry of Economy published rules that state official signs with memorable combinations of letters and numbers will be officially sold next year, Kommersant reports.
In order to get “beautiful” rooms to your taste, drivers will need to pay a state fee or participate in an auction.
According to the publication, a draft of the relevant resolution was published on the portal of the government of the Russian Federation. It is noted that the new rules will come into effect on January 1, 2021.
You can reserve your favorite number through the public services portal. In this case, you can choose a combination from the list, which, like the increased state duty, will be fixed in the Tax Code. It is noted that in the regions the payment for the purchase of beautiful rooms may increase or decrease at the discretion of local authorities.
The decree prescribes tenders for the sale of government bonds within 30 days. It is known that one citizen will not be able to participate in auctions more than 5 times at a time. It is noteworthy that half of the paid state duty will go to the regional budget.
As previously reported by Rambler, the innovation should eradicate the problem of selling numbers “in the gray.” Therefore, under the new rules, when buying a car with a beautiful number, the owner will be required to pay an increased state duty. If this is not done, the sign will go to the traffic police, and the buyer will be given a regular number.
