The session of the Moscow Financial Forum under the title ‘Tax administration: future patterns’ was attended by Olga Chepurina, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Government of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Volvach, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, and Daniil Egorov, Head of the Federal Tax Service.
During the discussion, the experts touched upon the issue of providing targeted support. According to Dmitry Volvach, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, targeted support to those who need it actually reduces poverty by 10%, and the accumulated effect of such support could yield up to 0.5% of the country's gross domestic product by 2030.
'Our client-centric culture has a direct impact on the economy. There are calculations and studies available that show a strong influence on some areas of operations, for example, providing targeted support to the population, primarily families with children, through the services of the Federal Tax Service. It turns out that it reduces poverty, and the key here is the correct organization of targeted support to those who need it,' Volvach said.
The state pays more and more attention to the needs of the public and strives to find optimal ways to interact with citizens as well as businesses. The once complex processes of providing public services are now becoming clear and simple, readily available in electronic form. However, there are still gaps to be filled.
At the same time, according to Daniil Egorov, Head of the Federal Tax Service, relations in taxation are not limited to relations between taxpayers and a tax authority. 'Relations in taxation are more than just relations between a taxpayer and a tax authority. It is much more complex. It requires a great deal of planning for years to come, and we have to be very careful about it,' the Head of the Federal Tax Service of Russia said.
