In Ukraine, the massively closed Popy

Within three weeks of the President signing the law requiring physical persons-entrepreneurs (FLP, Popy) to pay a single social contribution (ERU), was closed more than 158 thousand such enterprises. About svidetelstvuet monitoring data OpenDataBot.

“From January 1, FOP needs to pay a single social contribution – UAH 704 per month, even if you do not have profits. Since the signing of the law stopped their work more than 158 000 private entrepreneurs”, – reported the analysts.

Recall, from January 1, a separate category of PE, in particular, the second and third groups have to pay the ERUs in the amount of UAH 704 per month, even if you temporarily have no profit. When the first group of “uproschentsev” has the ability to pay half of the minimum premium in the amount of UAH 352 per month.

This innovation has led to the fact that Ukrainian entrepreneurs during the last days of 2016 began to close his business, which is temporarily idle. Entrepreneurs suspect that the new year initiative was made in order to surprise them and to force those who hesitated to pay ERUs for the first quarter of 2017, as the tax is paid quarterly.

In Parliament, meanwhile, has proposed to introduce a transitional period for the elimination of “sleeping” PE.
