Policy Borisov: We want the gray sector to come to light


If we revoke Ordinance H-18, which regulates a new way of reporting traders to the revenue agency, you will accuse us that the state is not performing its functions. When rules are imposed, business is not appealing, but the aim of the new regulation is to shed light on the economy. This was made clear by the words of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov during the 14th annual meeting of business and government. This year’s edition of the forum focuses on the prospects for the global economy, the risks to Bulgaria and how they can be avoided. Borisov also comments on the so-called. The EU’s green deal, tolls, is the government turning to state capitalism.“We want the gray sector to come to light. I notice strange behavior in everyone. Talking about where the state is, going to fulfill its functions becomes a big problem. Why hoteliers want to reduce their VAT to 3% because they will go bankrupt. And why Turkey, Serbia and Greece have better tourism – because they have better cooks, “Borisov added in his style.

From his words it became clear that this afternoon at the Ministry of Finance there will be a meeting with the business and it will be discussed whether the entry into force of the ordinance of February 1 for most companies using software for sales management (SUPTS), to did not delay. The prime minister hinted that he was inclined to take such a step. For tomorrow, Wednesday, small business representatives are protesting against the implementation of the ordinance.

“The idea of ​​a toll system is to break the pay, the idea of ​​the H-18 regulation is to brighten the business. If it’s not pleasant, it’s been so for decades, we won’t introduce it, but I assure you that in Vienna, which you are setting an example, you can’t think of leaving without a receipt, “Borisov said.

He urged reporters on the topic to be asked by Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov, who in turn said he saw no reason for the H-18 regulation to be postponed again.

Where is the country

Provoked by the question of whether the state was turning to state capitalism, Borisov said that he had proposed a mega water supply and sewage holding to create the state in order to make the structure more operational.

He added that Greece has introduced an additional toll on the highways, but the Bulgarians do not complain and pay it, but in Bulgaria they protest against the toll system, but they want a change of the road marking and construction of the Hemus highway. “In Serbia and Macedonia they pay, but the tiradzis want to move here without money because our country owes it,” said Borisov, overlooking the fact that even now the road traffic in Bulgaria is paid by buying vignettes that the state sells.

He added that the problem with the water supply and sewerage system has been around for years, and some mayors have boycotted the replacement of water pipelines, which require a total of BGN 12 billion.

“Who saves water in Bulgaria? Is there anywhere in the hotel to get water from the tap and drink water,” asked Borisov. His hall said that Vienna was such a city. “We can still talk about why Vienna is Vienna and go since 1945,” Borisov said.

Currency Board

Borisov reiterated that the government’s goal is to join Bulgaria’s European Monetary Mechanism by the end of April. “This means that banks will not fall, prices will not rise and the currency board will not fall, to say it again,” Borisov said.

Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov added that the government and the government do not intend to do anything to jeopardize the exchange rate – we will either enter the exchange rate with the mechanism or we will not enter.

The green deal

Borisov and Deputy Prime Minister Donchev commented cautiously on the so-called. EU green deal. “The fundamental question is whether the green deal is a parachute jump or a good deal. The question is how this green turn will affect the price of electricity. We must all go green, but at the necessary speed, so that we do not become green and poor,” Donchev commented. . He and the Prime Minister noted that 60% of the electricity in Bulgaria is produced by coal plants and 100 thousand people are employed in the sector.
