The Creation of Agricultural Cooperatives to be Simplified from 2014

Currently, the Agency is working to simplify procedures related to obtaining the status of a cooperative with the participation of the international organizations—the aim is to develop a single, standard form for everyone.

“Therefore, we are not in a hurry to start the process of assigning the status of the cooperative—we start doing it after it becomes maximally simple without any complications. In the near future a web site will be created where one can get all information about cooperatives. Next year an active information campaign in the regions will also begin—we’ll explain how beneficial is to be a member of the cooperative, as the government frees them from all taxes up to January 1, 2017, “—say the Agency.
