The bills approved by the Verkhovna Rada will promote the efficiency of the work of the authorities, as they contribute to greater openness in the steps made and improve the mechanisms. Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk stressed while commenting on the bills passed by the Verkhovna Rada.
“Today's decision makes it possible to reload the authorities, to bring effective management to the civil service. The new format is not only about simplifying the procedure of hiring to and dismissing from the civil service. The adopted bill No. 1066 increases the responsibility of civil servants for the achieved results of their activity”, Oleksiy Honcharuk commented.
The Head of Government expressed confidence that the new law would prevent abuse of office, avoiding responsibility for inaction and improper performance of official duties. The possibility of a contracted civil service will allow Government to attract highly professional personnel.
Aimed to improve the public procurement mechanism through Prozorro, Bill No. 1076 is designed to strengthen accountability for breach of law, in particular by unscrupulous customers.
“The adopted bill introduces personal responsibility for violation of procurement legislation and improves the mechanism of the appeal. It will provide businesses with enhanced opportunities for asserting their rights”, said Oleksiy Honcharuk.
Apart from that, the law harmonizes public procurement standards with international standards. In addition, the document addresses the issue of international drug procurement.
Simplification of financial restructuring of corporate debts is envisaged by Bill No. 1070. According to the Prime Minister, adopting the document will allow to more effectively address the issue of the number of troubled loans, the risk of bankruptcy of enterprises that have temporary liquidity problems but are able to restore sound economic activity.
Bills No. 1057 and No. 1072 introduce, starting January 1, 2021, a new consolidated reporting from single contribution for mandatory state social insurance (MSSI) and individual income tax (IIT), which is more unified with a single fixed filing term.
“These bills simplify the conditions for doing business. Combining reporting with the MSSI and the IIT reduces the number of reports for taxpayers - insurers and reduces the time spent by businesses to compile the reports”, said Oleksiy Honcharuk.
