Successful implementation of the agreement with the taxi and private transportation drivers

A meeting was held today at the Ministry of Finance and Economy with the representatives of taxi and private transportation drivers associations, regarding the implementation of the agreement reached last month on the obligations payment, according to the public revenue law and regulation.

The Ministry of Finance and Economy and the representatives of these associations assess with satisfaction that the beginning of the agreement implementation has been very successful so far. Only a month ago, thirds of the taxi and private transportation drivers concerned were not paying their respective obligations. Today, however, three quarters of taxi drivers and a half of private transportation drivers are complying regularly with the Public revenue regulations.

The Ministry of Finance and Economy and the drivers associations appeal on the remaining taxi and private transportation drivers to begin paying their dues, and to maintain the already reached satisfactory level of monthly obligations payment level in the future. That would be the best way to take benefits foreseen, such as:

1. Reprogramming of old debts, in the next three years, with the interest rate wiping out
2. The possibility of tax-free vehicle import for the business pursuing purposes

In the meantime, it is pointed out that non-complying with the obligations payment regulations can result in the working permit withdrawal.

The Ministry of Finance and Economy assess with satisfaction that a major part of our important economy category decided to comply with regularity with its obligations to the society.
