However, the measures taken by the regional authorities to support business allowed it to be preserved. Also, tax revenues to the budget have increased significantly and the number of jobs has increased significantly.
– What do we see as a result? The number of entrepreneurs not only did not decrease, but grew: the benefits that were provided to them in a package, for example, a simplified tax system, gave a significant increase both quantitatively and qualitatively, – says the deputy of the Legislative Assembly for the district electoral No. 12, chairman of the committee for industry, economic policy and tax Alexey Melnikov. –
And any economy depends not only on large, but also on small and medium-sized businesses. With our systematic work aimed at supporting businesses, we have created a sustainable platform for the development of the entire small and medium-sized business sector.
A separate topic, to which more attention is paid, is the development of TASED, industrial and technological parks and special economic zones. According to Alexei Melnikov, they play a very important role in the economy of the Kama region. For them there is a wide package of tax benefits, which are granted for a significant period of up to 10 years.
Any company involved in these projects understands that it has arrived at a ready site, a prepared infrastructure and can immediately create its own production. And tax incentives allow you to develop, attract additional financing, including credit.
– We are not the only region where entrepreneurs are actively encouraged to open a business, offering benefit packages in return. But when we have the opportunity to create some economic zones that entail significant tax exemptions, a larger business may come to us, which will work not in a simplified way, but with reduced income tax, – says the parliamentarian.
And this, Aleksey Melnikov noted, is already completely different budget revenues, a different number of jobs and a huge advantage in competition with other regions.
The Kama region’s interest in supporting all layers of the business community will not weaken this year or next.
– This is what we saw and heard during the Governor’s annual address to the Legislative Assembly of the Perm Territory. There is a stable positive dynamic in the industrial sphere of the region. A great achievement is industrial cooperation. Many large companies are merging with small companies, which creates new jobs, says Alexey Melnikov. – And a big jump in the newly registered small and medium-sized companies are the new additional taxes to the budget. Of course, all intraregional policy is aimed at improving the investment potential of the Kama region. We use significant funds to develop special economic zones and other areas that attract investment to our region. All this was expressed by the governor in his message.
So, today in the Perm Territory, the status of “priority” has already been assigned to five investment projects, as a result of their implementation, by 2025-202, powerful logistics centers will appear in the region.
– I am sure that, in addition to the projects that have already started, the incentives introduced in the Perm Territory will help to attract even more investors to the development of the large logistics infrastructure of the region, – Alexey Melnikov emphasized.
