The Federal Tax Service (FTS) and the Ministry of Finance have proposed to tighten the practice of using cash registers (KKT) in retail markets. On Monday, March 29, RBC reports with reference to a source familiar with the plans of the service.

It is noted that the practice of state control over activities in the markets shows that tenants and market managers are not interested in the “process of legalizing market trade”.

The Federal Tax Service has already sent its initiatives to the Ministry of Finance. They provide for amendments to the laws “On cash registers”, “On retail markets”, as well as the Code of Administrative Offenses. The service proposes to reduce the list of cases in which CCP may not be used on the market, and to oblige tenants to confirm the presence of cash registers before concluding a lease.

In addition, market management companies on an ongoing basis must monitor tenants for the presence of a registered CCP and prohibit the access to the market of persons whose activities are suspended.

It is also proposed to implement a simplified procedure for bringing sellers to administrative responsibility in the form of a warning.

Earlier, on March 23, Izvestia wrote that the Federal Tax Service last year forcibly collected 930 billion rubles from non-payers to the budget.
