Klymenko calculated the amount damage caused to state by termination of one entrepreneur’s activity

Since the beginning of the year, nearly 200 000 individual entrepreneurs ceased its operation after growth of tax burden and toughening fines for Ukrainian business. By the middle of the year, this number can reach half a million. Such data was written by Oleksandr Klymenko – the leader of the «Uspishna Kraina» party and former Minister of Revenue and Duties – on his Facebook page. The politician also calculated the amount of damage caused by termination of one entrepreneur’s activity.

Klymenko took individual entrepreneur from Kharkiv, who produce paving slab, as a basis for calculations that you can find on his Facebook page.

The politician published turnover of the businessman and specified the amount of his employees and their salaries as well as number of taxes paid to the budget.

According to Klymenko’s estimates, after the closure of such individual entrepreneur, the state will not receive UAH 47,904 of taxes and UAH 110,400 of VAT per year.

Taxpayers will spend UAH 120 036 per year on payment of unemployment insurance benefits to the entrepreneur and his employees. In total, damage caused to the state will be amounted to UAH 245 788.

Oleksandr Klymenko writes that it comes about basic math. However, «the power was not smart enough for it…».

“I will not take into account populist comments concerning the fact all individual entrepreneurs were sleeping. Who will pay taxes each month with zero balance among the individual entrepreneur? – Well, it is really rare case”, – the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” party.

The politician is confident: even if we assume that absolutely all the closing individual entrepreneurs – are donut hole (although it is impossible), people should have been notified at least six months earlier.

«They had to warn people and say: “Ladies and gentlemen, since January 1, 2017, there will be such taxes. Make your decision. Plan your future. It is called respect for business and compliance with the law (if Groisman and Poroshenko do not know it)”, – Klymenko summed up.
