The changes will affect pensioners, motorists, supermarket buyers and customers of foreign online stores. “” has collected the most important: taxes, benefits, price increases, new rules for marking products, Parking cars and even trips to the toilet at train stations.

Increase the price of the wine

This is due to the increase in excise duties from 1 January. Such a law in September 2019 was signed by President Putin. The wine will go up further. From 2020, the excise tax will be 31 rubles per liter, 2021 — 32 rubles, with 2022-th — 33 rubles.

At the same time, the Ministry of industry and trade do not expect a sharp rise in the price of the car. They said that to keep the price of Russian cars would help the state support measures, and the imported share of index utilization fee is only two to five percent.

The system of certification of organic products will start to work in Russia from January 1, 2020 after the going into effect of the law on organic products. Since then, the manufacturers can call their products “organic” for marketing purposes.

In Europe and the United States marked “bio” or “organic” means that the products have been produced without the use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics and certain means of plant protection. In Russia until recently, the laws did not define what is organic or “organic”products, so manufacturers simply used the mark to attract the attention of consumers.

Home buyers will protect from fraud. But only a bona fide

The Federation Council had in December 2019 to approve previously adopted by the state Duma a law to protect innocent property buyers from scams.

Experts say that the main ploy of fraudsters in the conclusion of real estate transactions is a fake power of attorney for sale of accommodation and false documents confirming the right of ownership. Under the new law, if a person acquire housing, based on information from the state registry that he default is considered fair. Housing, of course, returned to owner. But if you recover money from the fraudsters who sold the apartment, it is not possible, then the bona fide purchaser is entitled to receive compensation from the Federal Treasury. Amount — less than 1 million (but not exceeding the cost of housing, of course).

If the President has time to sign the law before the New year, it will take effect from 1 January.
