In the course of the meeting of the parliamentary committee for the development of entrepreneurship and industry, deputies were busy adjusting the norms of the law "On Customs Tariff". In the second reading, they adopted an addendum to the law "On Customs Tariff", according to which privileges were established for the import of vehicles for organizations that carry regular routes passengers by public transport.
This is due to the need to update the bus fleet, since the age of more than a third of vehicles used in the republic to transport passengers on regular routes more than two decades. Currently its total capacity is 450 buses. People's deputies believe that as a result of the adoption of the law-in-draft, the expected increase in vehicles will positively affect the renewal of the fleet, will help create new routes, improve the provision of passenger transportation services, and increase tax revenues to the budget. The possibility of preferential import of vehicles can be used only by legal entities. At the same time, a legislative ban on alienation (sale, leasing) of purchased vehicles for a period of three years is established.
As part of the spring session, deputies of the Supreme Council decided to release participants in military operations to protect Pridnestrovie, internationalist soldiers and "Chernobyl victims" from paying a customs tariff when importing vehicles for personal needs. However, they were limited in the right to transfer control of vehicles to other persons. Responding to numerous appeals to the Supreme Council, Vice Speaker of the Parliament Galina Antyufeeva made a legislative initiative to amend the current provisions of the law "On Customs Tariff". It is supposed to transfer the right to drive to close relatives. The law-in-draft was unanimously supported by members of the Committee for the Development of Entrepreneurship and Industry. Earlier, close relatives include parents, children, adoptive parents and adopted, full-fledged and half-brother and siblings, grandfather and grandmother, grandchildren.
