EGAIS as an indicator of misunderstanding of local business realities

Konstantin Bogdanenko

Head of the Primorsky branch of the "Support of Russia"
The proposal was made on February 19 at a meeting of representatives of the trade business with the Commissioner for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs in the Primorsky Territory - Marina Shemilina. It was mainly about the difficult situation that has developed in remote areas of Primorye in connection with the need to implement the EGAIS system, which was launched from the federal top this year (a unified automated information system based on the Internet for monitoring the production and sale of alcoholic beverages in the field) ... Many districts in the outback of the region are simply not adapted for this (there is no Internet and technological equipment to connect to the Unified State Automated Information System).

“EGAIS is a good thing, but, in principle, it will not be able to work normally all over the country right away, due to the fact that it is automated. And entrepreneurs will have to pay huge fines tomorrow. Appeals to businessmen to apply to the government with requests to postpone or amend the rules of the Unified State Automated Information System are untenable. Business people cannot waste time on useless writing.

At the same time, we have a whole Ministry - the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, which should be developed by the development of the Far East. It seems to me that it would be necessary to talk to his leadership so that they inform federal services and agencies like Rosalkogolregulirovanie about the realities that exist on the ground. After all, officials from Moscow often see everything quite differently from what it really is ... ”, Konstantin Bogdanenko stated his and not only position. Marina Shemilina, Primorye Business Ombudsman, treated her with understanding.

Recall that today, according to the sectoral rules introduced by the government, the EGAIS system may not be implemented at trade enterprises located in settlements with a population of less than 3000 people and without access to the Internet. But in Primorye there are a lot of settlements in which a little more than 3000 people live, and the settlements within such settlements are widely scattered among themselves across the Ussuri taiga, and some of these settlements have an Internet connection, while others do not. Formally, retail outlets in such settlements fall under the requirements to connect to the Unified State Automated Information System, but in fact they cannot do this.

At the same time, the fines for not connecting to the EGAIS amount to 150 200 thousand rubles. This puts legal traders in the provinces at a deliberately disadvantageous position in comparison with illegal immigrants who, without registration of individual entrepreneurs and LLCs, sell alcohol, as they say, from under the counter (often counterfeit). Illegals, according to the existing Russian legislation, risk (in the event of being caught and drawn up a protocol with the participation of the police) only by paying a one-time fine of 500-2000 rubles.

Thus, created with good intentions, but focused only on conscientious entrepreneurs
the EGAIS system in its current form can further stimulate the flourishing of underground trade
uncertified alcohol in rural areas of the region, ruining the health of ordinary people and the income of honest
entrepreneurs - representatives of Primorye business are worried.

ER Help:

According to Federal Law No. 
182-FZ "On state regulation of the production and turnover of ethyl alcohol ..." from January 1, 2016, retail stores in the Russian Federation must transmit to EGAIS information on purchases of any alcohol (including beer). And in July, the requirement for a report through EGAIS on retail sales of alcoholic beverages comes into force. Each unit of goods will have to pass through the system.
