On December 6, 2017 a press conference organized by the Ukrainian Stock Breeders Association on the topic: "Blocking of tax invoices is the destruction of respectable producers" will be held in the premises of the UNIAN Information Agency.

The impetus to organize this event was the scandalous need to draw the attention of the authorities and the public to the serious problem with which good manufacturers have faced in the last few months, namely, the mass blocking of tax invoices after the state introduced an automatic system for registering tax invoices (a tax invoice is a document confirming the right of enterprises to reimburse them for taxes).

For a short period from July 1, 2017, more than 500,000 tax invoices have been blocked, which leads to the shutdown of enterprises and significant financial losses!

This problem was not circumvented by agricultural enterprises and enterprises closely connected with the agrarian sector. A significant part of the enterprises, members of the Ukrainian Stock Breeders Association, play a key role in the development of the agricultural sector, also became victims of the blocking of tax bills. It destroys the agrarian business of Ukraine!

Today, tax bills for tens of billions of UAH have already been blocked!

This entailed a new corruption scheme: now some "resourceful" citizens 2% of the amount of the tax bill are ready to "help" in its registration.

"Already for almost five months we have received numerous complaints from members of our Association for the automatic blocking of tax invoices, which is why business can not normally conduct business activities," says Iryna Palamar, chairperson of the USBA. - For example, four hundred and eighty-three tax bills for a total of more than 23 million UAH, issued to buyers of finished goods, were blocked recently from one of the leader's feed enterprises. I believe that the deliberate blocking of tax invoices is not just the destruction of Ukrainian business that fills the country's budget, but it is also a criminal offense that can be qualified under Article 206 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine "Counteraction to legal economic activities".

The main problem of why the tax invoices are blocked is that the experts of the Ukrainian Stock Breeders Association consider imperfect the system of assessing the risk criteria sufficient for stopping the registration of a tax invoice led by Order of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine No. 567 of June 13, 2017 "On Approving Criteria for Evaluating the Risk Level Sufficient for Stopping Registration of Tax invoice / calculation of adjustments in the Unified Register of Tax Invoices, and an exhaustive list of documents sufficient to make a decision on the register of tax invoice / calculation adjustments ", with the final changes from 11.09.2017 year. Now in the parliament two bills have already been registered, the official purpose of which is to solve the problem of blocking tax bills - the register No. 7240 of October 27, 2010, introduced by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, and No. 7115 of September 15, 2017, by people's deputies of Ukraine. However, none of the bills has yet been considered by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

We invite all not indifferent representatives of the press and the public to participate in the press conference in order to draw the attention of the authorities to the problem!

The event will be held on December 6, 2017.
