The submission of the declaration will be divided into the two stages. Stage 1-introduction to the declaration system: to start the declaration the individual has to fix his/he start, which shall be started with the submission of the declaration on assets. He has to declare the number of assets he /she has и and then he/she annually has to declare the purchases and income, in order one could then analyze the coincidence. The declaration of assets is the initial stage. “Roughly says the more the taxpayer writes there the better it is for him”, Dalenov said.
Stage 2 – annual submission of the declaration on income, where all the income sources and large purchases are shown.
Vice-minister clarified that the more property is put into the initial declaration, the less questions will arise to the taxpayer in the future when performing large transactions.
