The Ministry of Economic Development proposed to increase the statute of limitations for bringing to administrative responsibility for failure to submit reports to Rosstat. The relevant bill is posted on the Portal of draft regulatory legal acts.
The authors of the project note that now the consideration of cases of late submission of statistical reports is carried out by Rosstat within a period of up to 2 months from the date of the administrative offense. This time is often insufficient for a detailed check and determination of all circumstances.
At the same time, the quality of preparation of materials received from other entities of official statistical accounting is not always sufficient to initiate and consider a case of an offense.
The need to prepare additional requests for clarification and analysis takes time. This leads to the fact that often organizations and individual entrepreneurs avoid responsibility. In addition, a 2-month period is insufficient if it is necessary to prosecute persons who have committed an administrative offense repeatedly.
In this regard, the bill proposes to increase the statute of limitations for bringing to administrative responsibility for failure of statutory reporting. The term is planned to be increased to 2 years.
