The public debate on the draft Law on the joint contribution of companies with revenues of more than EUR 5 million has been extended to April, and no matter what happens, the Draft Law will be established and the Government will not give up on it, Minister of Finance Aleksandar Damjanović said in the Oksvir show.
Employers’ associations believe that this is a burden on the economy and recommend the Government to become more actively involved in the fight against the gray economy, and not to stifle successful companies. Minister Damjanović also said that the Government is intensively working on the Proposal for the Luxury Tax Law.
Minister of Finance Aleksandar Damjanović said that the proposal of the Law on Luxury Tax will happen.
– The proposal of the Law will be, and that at a timely and appropriate moment. Now that we see these balance sheets, I look forward to those facts. Unusually high increases in the profits of certain companies from these sectors that we are talking about, which will be in the order of ten million euros – said Damjanović.
Marko Miročević, executive director of the American Chamber of Commerce, said we aim to understand the needs of organizations that are part of a large network that represents over 17,000 companies.
– In order for you to attract such companies, some of the key things that are considered as a prerequisite is that these companies want to be partners with decision makers, which is why we seek to be part of quality timely communication when shaping the business environment – said Miročević.
The general secretary of the Union of Employers of Montenegro, Suzana Radulović, pointed out that what bothers everyone the most is that the growth of the company is demotivated.
– On the other hand, all those inexhaustible sources of additional budget revenues remain unused – said Radulović.
Srđan Perić from the Preokret Movement said that there is still an ideological burden from the Second World War that in Montenegro private property is considered enemy activity.
– You have a constant trend of pushing people towards the public sector, because then you can build party fiefdoms where you simply have a tendency to make some kind of serfs if you could – Perić said.
