Today there was a meeting in the Ministry of Finance. They were instructed to develop new principles of tax policy, which will stimulate the development of the real sector of the economy. They discussed measures of fine, I would say the finest setting. From what has been discussed, I understood little. I say all of this is important, but is it possible to write more meaningful items in the package of measures? Return of benefits for income tax for companies that invest in development to consider, for example?
The answer is no, you cannot. We consider the amendment only in the direction of tightening taxes. We are not authorized to offer exemptions.
After that, it became quite boring.
I heard only the name Kudrin mentioned a few times as the main authority.
That is, I received yet another confirmation: kudrinists are planning to act as before, exemptions not considered for the real sector. Invites all to reconcile with stagnation as the "new reality".
The work that we are conducting in the CCI to develop a new, proper economic strategy becomes more important. Which leads to the rapid development of the country.
Using the occasion, once again I invite all to watch the presentation of the principles of this strategy. The discussionan is also interesting. Someday all of this will be realized.
