“It is possible to market agricultural products, but only in officially authorized places. Gardeners have the opportunity to sell their crops at a farmers’ market or at a social fair, but to do this they must apply in advance and conclude a simple contract directly on the website. Another option to sell their products, including prepared ones, is the weekly fair,” State Duma deputy and president of the Union of Vacationers of the Moscow Region, Nikita Chaplin (United Russia faction), explained to RG.

It should be noted, he stressed, that the legislation clearly defines the list of places where trading is prohibited: near roads, in the subway, on trains and in other means of public transport, as well as near administrative buildings, schools and kindergartens. . . It is also worth noting that in order to be exempt from paying taxes when selling your harvest, several conditions must be met.

“It is necessary to convincingly prove that the land area does not exceed 50 acres (the maximum size for a personal subsidiary plot) and that the vegetables or fruits were grown by the gardener himself or his family, without the participation of hired workers , which may be confirmed by a certificate from the local administration or management of the SNT. This document must be updated annually. In general, it would be advisable to allow supermarkets to set aside a shelf for the sale of gardening products. Summer residents could sell their harvest if they have a certificate from the administration or SNT. “This would give grandparents an additional opportunity to earn money,” says Chaplin.

Lawyer Ilya Rusyaev, managing partner of the company Rusyaev and Partners, added that in Russia administrative fines are imposed on the owners of summer houses and family plots for some violations. The most common cases are the sale of products grown without complying with established standards and requirements.

“First of all, it is necessary to understand that the sale of crops can be considered as a commercial activity that requires registration as an individual entrepreneur or self-employed person, however, for summer residents selling small volumes of surplus crops, there are simplified conditions. To legally sell the crop, it must be grown on an area of ​​less than 50 acres and, in the absence of hired workers, it is necessary to have a certificate from the gardening association or local administration confirming that the certificate is valid. a year,” he recalled.

Permitted places for the sale of crops are specially designated commercial places at markets and fairs, as well as exchange with neighbors, distribution to relatives and friends, sale through newspapers or advertising sites.

“Unauthorized trading on roads, at stops or in stores should be avoided, as this may lead to a fine of 500 to 2,000 rubles in accordance with Article 14.1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation for trading illegal,” the lawyer warned.

Fines are also imposed for the use of low-quality and uncertified seeds when growing crops specifically for sale (up to 500 rubles according to Article 10.12 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation) and for non-compliance with the rules to combat dangerous substances. weeds, such as Sosnovsky’s hogweed (from 300 to 500 rubles according to article 10.1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation at the federal level).

“It must be remembered that sales permits apply only to plant products. The sale of livestock products (milk, eggs, meat) is prohibited without the corresponding permits from veterinary services. Compliance with established rules will allow vacationers to legally sell surplus crops. without fear of sanctions,” Ilya Rusyaev stressed.

The lawyer added: “It is important to understand that no changes have occurred; These rules have been in force for a long time, perhaps they will be revised in the future, but at the moment there are no known initiatives to change the fines or introduce them. additional reasons for them.”

The head of the State Duma Committee on Labor, Social Policy and Veterans Affairs Yaroslav Nilov also explained to RG that he has no information about the upcoming tightening of business rules for summer residents and owners of personal gardens.

Previously, information appeared in the media that vacationers would be fined for selling potatoes and other vegetables from their plots. The new edition of the Administrative Code introduces a fine of up to 2 thousand rubles for trading crops without registering an individual entrepreneur.
