The President of the Legal Council of the People’s Party, lawyer Vladimir Gajić, stated today that the state, through its many years of negligence, has put freelancers in an “impossible position” and that it should write off their claims for the last five years and pay taxes for that activity in the future. regulates in a reasonable and acceptable manner.
“I call on freelancers to resist the retroactive tribute of the state, which has become higher than the principal due to default interest, and to turn to the People’s Office of the People’s Party, which consists of 20 lawyers from Belgrade, for free legal aid.” We will help them in every way, “Gajic said in the” Open “program.
Gajić stated that there are between 50,000 and 100,000 freelancers in Serbia, most of whom earn around 500 euros a month, and that it should be determined that in the future “those who earn more than 7,000 euros a year will enter the tax liability”.
“The state benefited from them anyway, the money entered Serbia and was not the result of creating income in the Serbian economy, and now it remembered them because it has a hole in the budget that it would fill by collecting taxes from freelancers.” On the other hand, they did not receive anything from the state except the internet connection, “Gajic said.
Gajic stated that most freelancers are young people of various professions, IT engineers, web designers, translators, architects who work for foreign companies, mostly from the USA, Australia, Canada and English-speaking countries, and that they “are not in the Serbian economy.” “.
“It is a large group of young people who are able to find a job on the world market on their own, and the state is now directly hindering their business. The only way to legalize their business is to open agencies and be self-employed, but they must have at least two clients. The obligations of the agency are between 25,000 dinars and 32,000 dinars a month, which means that the state would take 60 percent of the income from the one who earns 500 euros, which is a horrible expense, “said Gajić.
Gajic added that “banks most likely tipped their clients and handed out notices about a large number of people who have income from abroad in foreign currency, and that income is not taxed.”
Gajic assessed that the Minister of Finance, Sinisa Mali, “is not far from the decision to tax remittances from abroad”, which make up a large part of the foreign exchange inflow into Serbia.
The member of the People’s Party in the Assembly of Belgrade, lawyer Miloš Pavlović, said that the retroactive collection of taxes to freelancers was “the result of the robbery mentality of the SNS”.
“At the same time, due to retroactivity, the government is postponing the appropriate application of the Law on the Origin of Property.” “We should cross the property and income of Deputy Mayor Goran Vesić and members of the City Council, and not apply the law retroactively only to freelancers,” said Pavlović.
Member of the People’s Party Marina Lipovac Tanaskovic invited freelancers to contact the People’s Office via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Employees who suffer mobbing at work and discrimination due to critical attitudes towards the government, as well as possible whistleblowers who point out crime in the state administration and public companies, can also address the People’s Office, which was founded by the Belgrade board of the People’s Party.” Citizens who have problems with Infostan and similar legal problems can also get free legal advice, “said Marina Lipovac Tanaskovic.
