Cooperating with businesses, instead of punishing them – with this slogan, the Christian Democratic Movement has made accusations against the Ministry of Finance, according to which the ministry plans to use the funds obtained by the Board of Appeals to stock up the State Budget. The party’s secretary general Levan Vepkhvadze has stated that the freeze on companies’ assets has to be lifted, and any funds obtained from businesses through penalties, taxes, or otherwise, have to be reinvested into the economy.
According to Mr. Vepkhvadze, the Ministry of Finance has serious problems with regards to fulfilling its pledges for this year’s Budget, which is indicated by the delays in reviewing the cases submitted to the Board of Appeals, and imposing additional payments on companies. The Christian Democrats call on the Board of Appeals to be established as an independent body, free from the Finance Ministry’s influence.
According to the latest data, the Board of Appeals of the Tax Services has reviewed a total of 5517 appeal cases between January and June 2013, 547 of which were fully upheld, 2186 partially upheld, and 1585 rejected. A spokesman for the Finance Ministry has described the Christian Democrats’ allegations as absurd.
