Now the whole country has united around our President, including for a new economic breakthrough. We understand that the first thing to do is to support the business at a time when all the established supplies and financial systems are changing. Sevastopol has been living under sanctions restrictions for eight years. Our experience of development in lockdown mode will now be useful to other regions. In addition, we have a well-established business support system during the pandemic. It is important for us to successfully implement federal practices and develop additional measures to stimulate business at the regional level, so that every entrepreneur feels protected, so that jobs are not reduced, but created. I think that together we will cope with this task , — the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the governor of the city Mikhail Razvozhaev.
Ilya Pesternikov, Commissioner for the Protection of Entrepreneurs’ Rights in Sevastopol, emphasized that now business needs direct support.
We need preferential loans, that is, a subsidized interest rate, in order to maintain both enterprises and the number of employees. These are important steps. It is also necessary to limit as much as possible all inspections by federal and regional control (supervision) bodies. It is important to suspend all planned and unscheduled events, except when it comes to a threat to the life and health of people , says Ilya Pesternikov.
On behalf of President Vladimir Putin, the Government of the Russian Federation is working to expand federal measures to support entrepreneurs. In particular, we are talking about a moratorium on business inspections until the end of the year.
The Department of Economic Development of Sevastopol is working on regional support measures. Discussed, among other things, are lowering the income tax rate and the simplified tax system, deferring the payment of rent for land and state property in the second quarter 2022 of the year, expanding funding for the Easy Start program, launching additional training programs based on the My Business center and other measures.
The regional headquarters for coordinating the development and implementation of operational measures to maintain economic stability in Sevastopol will be convened once a week. At the next meeting, final decisions on the first regional support measures will be discussed.
