As part of the annual report to the head of state, Boris Titov, Commissioner for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs of the President of the Russian Federation, prepared a special report “Key trade issues under sanctions and structural transformation in 2023”, in which proposed a series of measures to improve the operation of the Single Tax Account (UNS).
The representative of the domestic company admitted that the Federal Tax Service “is trying to quickly solve the problems associated with the payment of taxes through the UNS” (quote from Interfax), but businessmen still face a number of technical problems.
In this sense, Titov proposed a series of measures to debug and adjust the system “in order to avoid future problems when entering a stable mode.” Among these measures:
- set multiple reporting dates,
- introduction of the penalty reflection algorithm,
- simplification of the procedure for the reduction of taxes paid under the tax patent system and simplified tax system,
- improve the procedure for internal audits of tax returns calculated on the basis of accrual for the year,
- fight against “false debts”.
The corporate ombudsman noted that “payers are facing a negative balance issue due to incorrect posting of payments in 2022 and 2023.”
As for the moment the system does not provide for any correction mechanism, an unpleasant situation arises for businesses: “virtual debts are paid and current liabilities are not cancelled, which are added to false debts”.
“Businessmen expect a prompt adaptation of the technical part of the system”, summarized the speaker.
