The Minister of Finance and Economy, Mlađan Dinkić, announced yesterday that during this month, the obligation of craftsmen to have cash registers and GPRS systems will be abolished. "If lawyers do not have such an obligation, there is no reason craftsmen should have it," Dinkić said, stressing that "that does not mean there will be no financial discipline." As Dinkić points out, the tax Administration of the market inspection will take control over unregistered businesses, and those who own an unregistered store will have a certain period of adjustment and entering the legal business system. Dinkić said that stores and restaurants will not be closed if they do not give a purchase receipt, but they will be fined. The Minister announced that financial support to entrepreneurs will be provided by the end of August, in order to retain solvency. As he explained, those will be loans whose interest should be one to two per cent per year, and they would be approved by the Development Fund. He added that by the end of September, certain para-fiscal levies should be abolished; stressing that he thinks the fees for company display for craftsmen, as well as the utilities fee for placing an advertisement should be abolished. He also invited craftsmen to say what else they think should be abolished. During the autumn, the Law on Copyrights will be changed, and the obligation to pay fees for playing music will be abolished, he said.
