The current system of blocking VAT-invoices does not destroy, but generates corruption

The monitoring system for risk assessment criteria creates new mechanisms for bribery instead of the declared fight against corruption. This was announced during the meeting of the Committee of Small and Medium Business Entrepreneurs, said the executive director of the National League of Transport Business Alexei Musatov.

The monitoring system for risk assessment criteria creates new mechanisms for bribery instead of the declared fight against corruption. This was announced during the meeting of the Committee of Small and Medium Business Entrepreneurs, said the executive director of the National League of Transport Business Alexei Musatov.

According to this , these data are unofficial, it were received while working with businessmen who systematically suffer from blockages. To understand the magnitude of the problem, after re-launching the system in March 2018, the National Transport Business League together with “Business Help!” started a public examination of the Ministry of Finance and the SFS. The first studies found that the number of blocked billing, compared with the same period last year, decreased by 30%, and blocked amounts – by only 15%. At the same time, the ratio of blocked by the system of overhead and unlocked “in manual” has not changed.

“In 2018, the SFS unblocked the tax invoice at 84%. In manual mode, officials make a decision that the lock is incorrect. We looked at the figures for 2017: the same percentage – 84% of tax invoices. There are 2 conclusions: either the system works incorrectly – and in this case, why it is needed, or “they” driving business in the corrupt scheme “, – summed up Alexei Musatov.

The entrepreneurs present at the event spoke against the SMCOR. According to them, they are stably suffering from the blocking of invoices, often – without understanding its grounds and the opportunity to correct the situation.

“The bill did not pass. We call: tell, what’s wrong, with what documents is the problem? We send all the list. And we have a note: “Not enough”. What does “not enough” mean!? “- one of the present entrepreneurs can not withstand, referring to the representative of the SFS.
“The package of documents for unblocking, then appeals, fifteen times to lawyers – we have managed to prove that we are not blame. You have to prove that we are guilty! “- sounds another replica.
Lawyer of the company “Dictum” Svetlana Moroz, said to avoid blocking tax invoices possible only by cancel VAT. So far this not happened – we must learn to work in Ukrainian realities.

“Every day SFS carries out an analysis of enterprises falling under the principles of riskiness. In order to avoid blocking, we must carefully prepare for the submission of documents in the SFS, pay attention to the smallest details, because even tiny deficiencies lead to blocking “, – explained Svetlana Moroz.

By 2018, according to the rough estimates, the victim of monitoring the system has become every twelve medium-sized enterprise. At the same time for any “circuit” not suffered.
“The SFS did not provide any documents on who, by decision of the court, was considered a fictitious “scramble “. So now it’s possible to say one thing: the current system of blocking the invoices did not justify itself and the realities force us to look for new and really effective methods of control “, – summarizes Alexei Musatov.

As a result of the meeting, the attendees agreed that by June 27, the business community must make an argumentated list of claims to the work of the monitoring system, which will further serve as the basis for an official appeal to the SFS and the Ministry of Finance.

Certificate. The monitoring system for risk assessment criteria creates was introduced in Ukraine in 2017. According to the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers, small and medium-sized businesses are subject to monitoring. The system was supposed to eliminate illegal tax evasion schemes. But the fact of its launch has led to a massive distraction of working capital and, as a consequence, the creation of problems in the work of enterprises (delayed salaries of employees, loss of contracts, courts). This caused resentment of businessmen, and from January 1, 2018, the mechanism of blocking VAT-invoices was suspended for two months with a view to refinement. The new system has been operational since March 1, 2018.
