expert Commentary

Alex Krichevsky, expert of the Academy of management Finance and investment: “One of the most interesting and positive innovations July – proliferation regime of self-employed across the country. This will gradually lead people working without registration and in private, from the shadows. After the dissemination of the project to the whole country the number of self-employed will increase in 1,5-2 times during the course of this year, and tax deductions may exceed 3 billion rubles. The government will ensure that the company have not transferred employees to self-employment because of the attractive tax conditions. To solve this, a transition period of six months, when a self-employed person has no right to conclude the contract with the company from which he retired.

the Introduction of electronic work books will enable you not to worry about the experience and a sudden loss of employment records – all data will be stored.

as for the indexing of utility tariffs, in comparison to the total falling of incomes of the population have been more logical to either cancel it completely or to postpone the period of raising the cost of housing services for the next few years, increasing by 1-1. 5% the indexing for “compensatory” period”.

Peter Pushkarev, chief analyst at TeleTrade: “Definitely good news will be the re-payment in July, 10 thousand rubles for each child up to 16 years. Any social benefits are able to stir almost “dead” consumer demand. So this money will help the business.

the long-Awaited theme – opening domestic tourism-free travel between the regions. Most importantly, to tourists on samuti��and inquiries and audits. Not the fact that citizens massively go to travel: once you get to the hotel, where one of the guests finds a virus there all vacationers adjusting to the isolation. In terms of the restrictions will be in demand more “wild” rest with the removal of apartments and private houses.

Many Russians were waiting for the chance to become legally self-employed. Well, that option is available to the most active young people from the age of 16. Bad, perhaps, that the decision on introduction of the self-employed are left at the mercy of regions, and tighten with changes in regional legislation. They still need to djonovic citizens to legalize and to convince that in a few years of power is not shut off benefits and not “cut” the tax press is already full.

Will be restored the normal order of indexation of pensions to the pensioners-Trustees of the children: equating them to working pensioners was clearly a misunderstanding. Well and what with the cards “the World” pensioners not allowed to go during the epidemic of the new, and allowed to fall to use the old”.
