Exemption of business in the Crimea from routine inspections will have a positive impact on its development, as many entrepreneurs soon adapted to Russian standards of doing business, said Chairman of the Crimean branch of the organization of small and medium entrepreneurship «OPORA Russia» Sergei lepenko.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law exempting the business in the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol from routine inspections until March 1, 2019. Previously it was assumed that this period will end on 1 January 2018.

«I welcome the extension of the moratorium on planned inspections. After all, the business, and by Supervisory agencies need time to move on to new principles of cooperation in the framework of a new risk-based approach to verification activities. Moreover, we have, in the Crimea, where many entrepreneurs are, by and large, just adapted to the Russian standards of doing business,» he said Lapenko RIA Novosti.

However, he stressed that businessmen-illegal immigrants must remain outside the moratorium.

«To them, in my opinion, it is necessary to apply all requirements of the law. After all, if we’re talking about fair competition, then let those businessmen who do not consider it necessary to work in the legal field, will be faced with a choice: either to register and pay taxes, or don’t work. So be honest in relation to the business community, and the state», — Lapenko.
