Taxes must be comfortable for the economy and businesses, and not for the officials, Azat Peruashev said at a briefing held in Service of central communications. He spoke about the government’s refusal to introduce differentiated VAT rates due to “administrative difficulties” – this response was received to the deputy’s request of faction a few days ago the press service of Ak Zhol informed.
Ak Zhol cannot ignore the orders of the Head of State on small and medium businesses. President called SMEs very accurately – “the main instrument of industrial and social modernization”, the leader of the parliamentary faction said and recalled the deputy’s request announced on 11 September of the last year.
We are talking about the performance of “Kazakhstan Development Strategy until 2050” and last year’s orders of the President of the Government to introduce a favorable tax regime for enterprises engaged in production and new technologies.
That year, the Ak Zhol deputies studied international experience, found a methodology and applied to the government with a proposal for the introduction of differentiated VAT rates for priority sectors of economy, based on the experience of the EU and WTO members.
“But the government first told us that this question requires a study of the working group, where we have not been invited. And last week, they officially responded that it is “impractical” to introduce the differentiated rates, indicating a single cause – “the difficulty of administration” A. Peruashev said.
“Taxes should be comfortable for the economy and businesses, and not for the officials. Differentiated VAT rates are an effective tool for real support for priority sectors and the diversification of the economy Ak Zhol believes .” – Tax Administration is the work of tax authorities. So, the government refused to support the priority sectors and the instruction on Strategy -2050 is to help to the tax committee be not overworked?” But it is their direct responsibility!”
Democratic Party of Kazakhstan Ak Zhol and its parliamentary group consider the present Message as extremely important strategic document, determining the vector of further formation of Kazakhstan with the progressive knowledge-based economy, advanced manufacturing industry, entrepreneurial mass movement.
We are ready to contribute fully to implement it and will insist on tax support for industrial and high-tech industries, including – through the introduction of differentiated VAT industry rates”, the leader of Ak Zhol said.
