The Ministry of Economic Development has posted a project for public discussion, according to which the primary statistical data will need to be submitted exclusively in electronic form. Under the current rules, organizations and individual entrepreneurs themselves decide in what form to report – in electronic or paper.
Note that the amendment does not apply to administrative data.
According to the plans of the department, the law should come into force on January 1, 2020. Small businesses are being offered to postpone: new rules will need to be applied from January 1, 2021.
