MOSCOW, Feb 9 – RIA Novosti. Chairman of the State Duma Viacheslav Volodin urged to abandon the “taste” in the issue of deoffshorization: in his opinion, companies registered in offshores should not receive state support.
The head of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, Maxim Reshetnikov, speaking on Tuesday in the State Duma, said that offshore companies with Russian beneficiaries can receive state support if this helps to preserve employment in Russia. According to him, this is possible if the owners are registered offshore, but the company is a large employer and retains jobs.
“If the named companies receive government support measures, why? They are registered in offshores, evade taxation. We take the taxes of our citizens and other enterprises and use them to subsidize these companies. Let's cancel!” – said Volodin at the plenary session.
He recalled that there is an instruction from the President on the issue of deoffshorization: in the politician's opinion, this should be a set of measures, and quite understandable ones.
“If you work in your own country, get a benefit, if you leave taxation, there is no benefit for you. Everything is clear and everything is clear. And this mechanism will work. Please,” Volodin added.
In this regard, the speaker of the State Duma proposed to instruct the Accounts Chamber to check the fact whether companies registered in offshores really do not receive state support.
“It is quite obvious that when we do not have a systematic approach, we begin to refer, in this case, to the fact that we need to save jobs, but at the same time we are losing taxes. At the same time, this is all tied to offshore. we say: no, we are interested in seeing these companies return. We just need to have a transparent, understandable, systematic approach. And we get some kind of taste. The result is the absence of simply the pace of the economy. Because we understand : the lion's share of both income and other funds goes to these offshores, “concluded Volodin.
