The president's orders regarding the allocation of tax incentives for businesses in the Far East are not being met - Trutnev

Today in Vladivostok, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev held an interregional meeting on tax incentives

Trutnev gave a negative assessment of the creation of preferential terms for investment projects that could be implemented in the Far East. And he gave instructions to fix the situation in two weeks.

- The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Economics, working on the federal law, the President's order deformed. The commission gave an opportunity to grant privileges to investors in direct access. Our officials have come up with a complicated mechanism for obtaining the status of a regional investment project, which included unnecessary additional requirements. For example, the lease period of the land plot. Where they took these terms, it is not clear, - the press-service of the seaside administration quoted the plenipotentiary.

“The orders of the President of the Russian Federation are not being fulfilled, the preferential norms are not fulfilled. In the text of the instruction, the President gave direct norms and specified industry directions. These orders must be fulfilled, economic business entities must fall within the boundaries established by the president and receive benefits established by the president. It turns out differently - additional obstacles are introduced, the subjects are setting additional barriers, ”Trutnev said.

According to him, requirements for the effectiveness of projects being implemented have been introduced in the Amur Region. “But what are the requirements? The projects are not economically efficient as the infrastructure is lacking. EAO - requirements for efficiency and number of jobs. But the president did not speak about it. Why did you come up with these requirements? Magadan - the requirements for the level of wages, the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug - for the absence of arrears, it seems fair, but these requirements were not in the order of the president, ”said Trutnev.

According to Trutnev, the actions of his colleagues who developed amendments to the tax code are close to sabotage. “We are developing the country, we need to make effective decisions, but it looks like the labyrinth of the Minotaur,” said the Deputy Prime Minister.

According to the plenipotentiary, the instructions of the president were, in fact, "deformed". “The President gave an order to provide tax benefits, starting from 50 million, the types of activities were listed, in fact, this order made it possible to provide benefits through a direct mechanism. But the officials came up with a complex mechanism for obtaining the status of a regional investment project, which included additional requirements. The regions also came up with additional requirements. We agreed that within two weeks our Ministry of Finance and the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East will prepare new amendments, remove excessive requirements for business, ”Trutnev said.

According to him, the receipt of the status of a regional investment project should be abandoned altogether.

Also, the plenipotentiary asked the governors to remove all additional requirements for projects. “Colleagues said that this would postpone the implementation of the president’s order for a year, this is not the case. Additional amendments improving the state of economic entities can be introduced during the current year.

I think that within a month we need to cope with this work and work in a human way, ”said Trutnev.
