Businesses will feel more at ease with no threat to consumer security

A cabinet sitting was held today, chaired by Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan

Before proceeding to the agenda, the Prime Minister referred to the status of his assignments of two-week standing and those changes operated within the ministries of healthcare, education and science, agriculture and finance (the Prime Minister’s statement is provided under a separate heading).

The government amended a previous decision, reference number 594-A, dated May 29, 2009, on organization and conduct of checkups, extending the deadlines set for suspended checks and inspections. The new wording of the decision stipulates that the ban on suspension is not applicable to such entities as are included in the shortlist of the Inspection Reform Coordinating Council.

Highlighting the decision, Tigran Sargsyan said as follows: “This issue is of concern to small and medium-size business representatives who have approached me repeatedly reminding that the established deadlines are expiring on January 1, 2011. We are hereby providing a clear-cut response as to when exactly the dozen of inspection entities will be entitled to carry out checks in small and medium-size businesses. Our approach is fairly clear: only such entities as will be placed on the shortlist of inspection reforms under which we have received most serious technical assistance.”

The government approved the model form for submission and discussion of trade mark applications, as well as for the workout, signing, registration and custody of contracts within the staffs of State agencies. The meeting approved the model form for stock-takings to be executed within the staffs of State agencies. To avoid any possibility of tax evasion, amendments were made to the law on taxes and the law on VAT.

The Executive next endorsed the introduction of a catalog for the design of those trade and catering facilities located along the motorways of interstate and national importance. This aims to streamline urban development activities and shape a unified architectural policy in the target zones.

The government operated substantial changes in the order applicable to the incentives and rewards established with a view to strengthening tax return exposure in the system of tax administration. Starting next year, bonuses will be available for those cash-register tickets having two or more digits at the front or at the back of the special number concurring with the ones issued and made public during the lottery. Each edition will feature 10 motorcars. A motorcar and an extra sum of AMD 1.1 million will be given for those special numbers with 7 or more concurring digits. If not won, the balance of the cars will be accumulated to the stakes envisaged for such special numbers as will have six or five concurring digits with the maximum transaction value. The tickets with 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2 concurring numbers will be provided AMD 50.000, 20.000, 5.000, 2.000 and 500 respectively. According to this decision, bonuses will no longer be paid out for flat tickets. Instead, the ones delivered in October, November and December, 2010 will be accepted for the January, 2011 edition of the lottery featuring 30 motorcars.

The meeting endorsed proposals on the introduction of medical scanning systems and the signing of intellectual property legal protection agreements within the CIS frameworks. The government next approved the amendments to the law on administrative infringements which provides for stricter measures against illegal fishing and hunting activities.

40 other decisions as well were passed during the meeting.
