Ukraine Imposes Fine on Pornhub for Non-Payment of Google Tax Allocated to National Armed Forces

Ukrainian authorities have taken action against the Canadian adult video giant, Pornhub, imposing a fine of $5,543. The penalty stems from the non-payment of the Google Tax, introduced in 2021 in Ukraine for foreign companies providing electronic services to residents and generating profits beyond certain thresholds.

According to Deputy Daniil Getmantsev, Pornhub has refused to register in the country, leading to this fine. Getmantsev emphasized the significance of this tax, intended to fund the needs of the Ukrainian military. He compared Pornhub s situation to that of OnlyFans, an adult platform that paid over $944,000 in taxes in Ukraine during the year 2023.

The Google Tax is designed to ensure that foreign companies contribute financially to national services, and Pornhub s non-payment has resulted in financial consequences. Ukraine, ranked 14th globally in terms of user visits to the site, is thus taking measures to ensure compliance with its tax regulations by foreign companies operating within its borders.
