The Ministry of Finance declared war to individual entrepreneurs

Owe state taxes of individual entrepreneurs (IE) will no longer be able to come to the Bank and under the guise of an ordinary citizen to open an account or get a loan. In a letter to the Ministry of Finance issued by banks, says financial institutions in the event such statements are required in electronic form to verify all individuals not only to entrepreneurship, but also on the availability of tax claims. The Federal tax service (FNS) has launched a similar service.

In June adopted amendments to the Tax code, concerning the opening of Bank accounts by individual entrepreneurs and legal entities. From now on, banks have the possibility of testing the client promptly in electronic form to of to EGRUL egrip and information about registration and statement on the account in tax authority. Thus, banks can identify the company and IP at electronic data, and also to open accounts without personal presence of their representatives.

At the same time, as you know, according to the Tax code in case of “Eureka” or “ipernica” there are tax claims (debt or is not delivered on time reporting), financial institution is obliged to refuse registration to such applicant. For ordinary citizens, even in the presence of fiscal debt, for example, transport or land tax, similar restrictions do not apply.

The Federal tax service (FTS) said “MK” that the adopted procedure simplifies the mechanism for the creation of small and medium enterprises, reduce paper document flow between credit institutions, tax agencies and their clients.

Until recently, there was one little loophole, which was sometimes used by unscrupulous individual entrepreneurs. Imagine the situation: the UI tax cut. Business is paralyzed, and work businessman it is necessary. Then he goes to the Bank with a request to open a new account, but as an individual. Often succeeded.

The Ministry of Finance in its letter indicated that banks necessarily use the new electronic service and conduct a check of individuals. Otherwise, the financiers were threatened with penalties from tax.

The chain of this innovation affected all banking services, including lending. That is unfair to the entrepreneurs, it became almost impossible to take a Bank loan, pretending to be an ordinary citizen. Travel abroad with tax debt it already has been booked. We were surrounded from all sides.

With legal entities in such a situation a lot easier. Closed one company has registered another clean. If you have something to lay quietly to get a loan.
