Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman commissioned to
develop a package of amendments to regulatory acts to simplify the procedure of
use of cash registers aimed to facilitate doing business in Ukraine. A corresponding
instruction was given to Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of
Ukraine Maxym Nefyodov at a
Government meeting on Thursday.
“I insist that we must elaborate all the necessary decisions
to ensure deregulation [in fiscal sector – ed.] regarding cash registers... I consider
it being another monopolistic and corruption-entwined component that have to be
rooted out”, he stressed. “I hope that soon we will have specific draft documents."
Volodymyr Groysman noted that in Ukraine the use of
electronic cash registers is a rather overregulated process, as it requires immense
bureaucratic control: individual equipment, connection, service. This does not
contribute to normal business environment in Ukraine, assures the Prime
context, the Prime Minister noted that recently with the support of USAID there
had been published annual survey that showed that the situation in Ukraine with
deregulation and making business is improving. It happened partly due to the
actions of the Government directed to the abolition of a number of regulations,
noted the Prime Minister and urged to accelerate work in this direction, aimed
to ease doing business in Ukraine.
