Putin proposed to temporarily exempt the self-employed tax


The President of Russia Vladimir Putin said about the need to liberate the self-employed from tax. According to him, the possibility of such relief for a period of “two years” had been discussed at party forums and platforms front. The head of state added that before the meeting of the Council for strategic development and priority projects discussed the proposal with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

According to Putin, the millions of Russian citizens work independently, but are forced to stay in the shadows because of all the bureaucracy, inspections, and extortion in business. “I believe that self-employed citizens need to offer a clear and convenient tool for interaction with the state,” he said.

Also, according to Putin, it is necessary to exclude any possibility of recognition of activities of self-employed illegal business.

According to Ministry of economy, Russia is approximately 16 million self-employed. They are employed and are unemployed but not registered as individual entrepreneurs.
