ACORT opposes the bill on local fees

The Association of Retail Companies has approached Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to veto the bill on local fees if adopted.

According to the Association, many companies, in connection with the discussion of the draft law, "are revising plans for business development, and some are already considering options for closing entire areas of business activity."

ACORT calls for the creation of a working group with the participation of the business community and the development of amendments to the Tax Code, which will contribute to economic growth, and is also ready to provide expert and analytical support to the working group.
