Budgetary Subsidies: Rules are Changed
Amendments to rules of providing subsidies from the federal budget to Russian organizations as partial reimbursement of costs for implementation of projects on organizing manufacture of drugs and (or) manufacture of pharmaceutical substances, approved by the Government decree of 01.10.2015 No 1047.
The corresponding document prepared by the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade provides an opportunity to subsidize organization of manufacture of a few pharmaceutical substances within one agreement for provision of subsidies. It will simplify the account of payments entitled to subsidizing of payments on agreements of equipment leasing, used for manufacture of a few pharmaceutical substances.
It is suggested that the project may include not only substances on the vital and life saving drug list, but also other substances. The project may include substances with one or two Russian manufacturers, which will enable renewal of manufacture of earlier authorized substances, and will enable production of substances that had not been manufactured earlier.
The proposed amendments provision for subsidizing of expenses for salaries to highly trained professionals and payments for licensing agreements with third persons for using technological know-how required for the project implementation
Subsidies are provided for replacement of actual expenses, therefore excessive requirements are excluded. Application for subsidy may be submitted only once a month. Project implementation is suggested within the limits of budgetary provisions according to the federal law in the federal budget for the corresponding financial year, and limits of budget requirements, approved as appropriate. No additional budget requirements will be required.
