ArmInfo. Chairman of the Committee of State Revenues of Armenia David Ananyan believes in the good intentions of the activists of the Republican Party. "I have no doubt that the RPA members sincerely and guided by the interests of the farmers agreed to trade networks, but I have different values," said the head of the SRC David Ananyan, on June 1 after the meeting of the government.
According to him, the previous agreements were between the former leadership of KGD and big business, and they were approved at a higher level. Therefore, in this case, no one has the right to accuse any member of the Committee of the pre-commitments with business structures. "I can not mention the separate names of the SRC employees, since the "system" came to an agreement (with the business - Ed.)," He said, noting that this agreement was achieved only with the consent of the country's leadership - up to the level of the prime minister "in order to prevent price fluctuations on agricultural products."
Nevertheless, the "honest gusts" of the Republicans are contrary to the values of David Ananyan. "I have other values, other thoughts, especially as the head of the State Revenue Committee," he said, adding that even what was carried out with honest intent, if it goes beyond the law, can not be acceptable to the person who deals with tax administration. "We should treat the tax legislation, the code as a gospel, it's bad, it's good, it needs to be applied and not go beyond the law. If as a result problems are identified, then through public discussions we have to make legislative changes," said the head of the SRC.
The large retail chains owned by the Republican oligarchs, under the pretext of providing the population with low prices for meat and fruit products, agreed with the former government to pay only 2% of turnover tax and in connection with these made out trade on fake individual entrepreneurs. As a result, almost all the retail trade in Yerevan was concentrated in the networks, and the stores, not standing the competition, were leaving the market.
