MOSCOW, March 18 (Itar-Tass) – The Russian government is ready to take very resolute steps against illegal business and tax evasion, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Shatalov told a conference organised by the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs in the format of the Russian Business Week.
In his words, the steps of the kind will first of all will be aimed against the fly-by-night companies and VAT unlawful reimbursement.
“The government declared a very strong readiness to start a large-scale fight to the effect,” Shatalov said, adding, “It does not rule out the steps, which are not traditional for Russia, but are widely used in other countries.”
The question is about a so-called “anti-laundering law,” which envisions a great number of proposals to the amendments to the Criminal Code, to the institution registration rules, to the currency regulation, and to the money-laundering legislation.
Late in February, Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov stated that the federal budget damage from the activity of fly-by-night companies is estimated at about 0.5-1.0 trillion roubles (USD 1 = RUB 30.89).
