Фермеры заявили об угрозе срыва сбора урожая. Обвинили налоговиков в произволе

Complained to the Cabinet and asked the officials to understand.

Ukrainian grain Association (UGA) has asked the Cabinet to intervene and solve the problem of unreasonable blocking by the tax authorities tax bills grain companies, as those abuses endanger the harvest and export of grain from Ukraine. This was reported by the press service of the UGA.

The Association believes that this situation – the pressure of the tax on economic activities of grain companies. In addition, such actions cause suspicion of corruption risks in the taxation service.

For example, one of the companies members of the UGA five times refused to supply the table data of the taxpayer and each time under a new false pretext, the report said. Four times for the alleged inconsistency of the activity in the data table and the existing fixed assets, for the fifth time – “other” and on the sixth time for the “alleged in the bodies of state tax service of information concerning the implementation by the taxpayer of risk of operations.”

As they say in the UGA, these are not isolated cases, it is quite common that blocks are actually a number of companies of the grain market in the most active period of harvest.

“A similar situation has happened with other companies that have managed to unblock work, when it became known about abuses in the tax authorities of the public and officials. However, the situation repeated again, still a long list of companies who suffer from arbitrariness”, – noted in the UGA.

Recall that in mid-July, the Finance Committee of the Verkhovna Rada suggested a more constructive version of a bill on legalization of agricultural land. For natural persons-entrepreneurs, including family farms, the tax rate is proposed to decrease from 5% to 2% of the normative monetary value.
