“The growth in the number of self-employed workers is due to the fact that this status can be obtained quickly, is beneficial in terms of benefits and offers many advantages,” says Yuri Shilov, member of the General Council of Business Russia.

At the same time, in his opinion, the situation entails significant risks for all companies. Therefore, many self-employed workers often become senior managers, without solving the pressing problem of staff shortages. There are also fears that there will be more opaque companies. Sometimes, entrepreneurs use the self-employed regime to evade taxes, reduce staff, etc.

In addition, there is another risk: non-transparent competition between one company and another.

“In my opinion, these risks could be overcome or at least minimized by a system of checkpoints: when, one or two years after the registration of a self-employed worker, the company’s activity and legality criteria are checked,” he believes. the expert.

The goal of introducing the institution of self-employment, which was to legalize relationships, mainly between individuals (tutoring, nannies, etc.), has been achieved, says Dmitry Riajovsky, head of the tax and tax administration department of the Financial Office. University dependent on the Government of the Russian Federation.

“A large part of the market has been legalized and has come out of the shadows. But I have many questions related to the fact that a large mass of self-employed people of this number are real workers, simply registered as self-employed in order to save on taxes by employers,” he explained.

This is precisely the reason for the increase in the number of self-proclaimed ones, he added. All this means that these payments do not pay insurance premiums or personal income tax, which entails not only budgetary losses, but also a restriction of the right of such persons to receive tax deductions for personal income tax. personal income and the absence of insurance deductions. cousins.

The professional income tax experiment will initially run until 2028.

“In the near future, the experience accumulated in the application of this tax regime will be implemented in legislative initiatives. But we would absolutely legally limit the right of individual entrepreneurs and organizations to conclude agreements with self-employed workers and consider issues related to security guarantees, including pensions, for the self-employed,” explained the expert.

Increasing the number of self-employed workers to 10 million in the country comes with risks and benefits. Pavel Zyukov, founder of the IT platform for freelancers “YAZANYAT”, chairman of the Tax Committee of MGO “Opora Rossii”, told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

“On the one hand, self-employed workers do not have a guaranteed income, social benefits or insurance in case of job loss. On the other hand, self-employed workers have the opportunity to freely manage their time and choose the projects they are interested in doing. “, I note.

According to the expert, the rapid growth in the number of self-employed workers may be associated with economic changes, such as an increase in unemployment and a decrease in the supply of stable jobs.

This mode can be effective for those who are striving for entrepreneurship and are ready to independently solve all work-related problems. The number of freelancers is likely to continue to grow, especially in today’s digital economy, where more and more people are choosing to work remotely or be self-employed.

“However, it is possible that the government may introduce changes to the legislation that regulates the activities of the self-employed, which could affect their number and working conditions,” he concluded.

Recall that the concept of “self-employment” appeared in the legislation in 2017. The pilot project was launched on January 1, 2019 in four regions. Then the regime began to spread throughout the country.
