Currently, online trade is actively developing, and if there is a wish, it is possible to buy almost any product or order any service on the Internet. Both – building materials wholesale and clothing, shoes and other products are sold in retail leads to the fact that geographical attachment to the sales place of products disappears.

Considering that Internet trade represents modern online trade network and is a significant addition to traditional trade, the State Tax Service, in order to control order of payments upon the product sale via the Internet, continuously monitors and analyzes information posted on available sites, internet marketplaces and platforms.
