Independent gas stations in Russia asked for benefits due to coronavirus

The Independent Fuel Union asked the Russian government to provide the participants of the fuel market with exemptions, including tax ones. The organization asks for action because of the coronavirus and the expected decline in fuel demand.

Union representatives sent writing Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and offered him a series of anti-crisis measures for small and medium-sized businesses operating in the fuel market. The organization proposes to suspend the damping mechanism until the end of the year with the ability to extend this measure to normalize the situation on the global commodity market, to suspend the weight control of bulk carriers and to charge them for the Platon system.

The organization also asked to declare amnesty for gas stations, fuel carriers and oil refineries for the payment of administrative fines and introduce a moratorium on tax audits. In addition, the union is requesting deferrals in the payment of insurance premiums and tax holidays for the payment of income tax and STS taxes.

The President of the Independent Fuel Union, Pavel Bazhenov, said that state support for enterprises operating in the areas of oil refining, transportation, storage and retail sales of fuel will prevent speculative price increases and ensure timely supply in a pandemic and falling consumer demand.

Earlier, the Russian government decided grant a respite collection of tax payments to companies involved in the field of air transportation and tourism. At the same time, the federal authorities noted that in the future this measure could be extended to other sectors affected by the coronavirus epidemic.
