Carelessly prepared and hastily voted last year changes the tax law make agricultural cooperatives go underground. Therefore, “Samopomich” asks its colleagues from the parliament to correct their own mistakes and return the status of non-profit organizations to agricultural cooperatives.
This was stated by Chairman of the “Samopomich” Union faction Oleh Bereziuk.
“We have already fixed some of our mistakes; in particular, we have returned the non-profit status to condominiums. But we have not returned this status to agricultural cooperatives – farmers, whom we are now forcing to go underground,” he stated.
The deputy notes that agricultural cooperatives today are not profitable, and the issue of providing them with the appropriate status will be considered in committee this week, and presented at the session.
“I am asking you to consider it carefully and to help people. It is our duty,” he stressed.
