• Putin called for equal conditions for Russian and foreign online retailers

  • Domestic and foreign participants of the e-Commerce market should be in equal conditions. This was stated by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at meeting on development of e-Commerce, reports RIA Novosti.

    "We believe that all market participants should be put in equal conditions. This applies to Russian, and to our foreign partners. And our foreign colleagues must be sure that they will always be in the conditions not worst than the Russian participants of the market. But Russian is not exactly a must be put in a worse than foreigners," he said.

    He noted that the rapid growth of e-Commerce market has its problematic point, in particular, regulation. Legislation does not always keep pace with market growth and as a result, Russian and foreign traders are often in unequal conditions, Putin said.

    Also, according to him, it is important that Russia worked its authoritative platform for e-Commerce. This will allow for effective promotion of Russian goods and services not only in their own market, but also abroad, said the President.

    In early October, the members of the Association of companies the Internet-trade (AKIT) promised go to offshore work model, if the conditions of doing business are not the same for Russian and foreign market participants. In AKITA insist on the introduction of VAT for foreign participants of the market, as local companies are required to pay taxes and charges (including import VAT and customs duties).

    It was also reported that the proposal of VAT on foreign Internet sites from 2018-2019 already contained in the draft guidelines for tax policy prepared by the Ministry of Finance.
