The head of Sberbank German Gref in an interview with TASS suggested that before the end of the year, the ruble could grow by about 10%. At the same time, he made a reservation that in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, it is rather difficult to make forecasts.

“Our national currency is closely linked to the price of oil, and it’s hard to predict. I trust one of the old and experienced analysts, Henry Grobe. He calls at the end of the year $ 60–62 per barrel. This means that the ruble will be in the range of plus or minus 60 to the dollar, ”Gref said.

The head of Sberbank added that in the case of the second wave of coronavirus, “the ruble may begin to fluctuate.”

Last month, the dollar has fluctuated between 68.20–70.20 rubles. Barrel Brent, as of the morning of June 29, is trading at around $ 40.70.

The Ministry of Economic Development softened the forecast for the fall of the Russian economy in 2020

Similarly, the pandemic situation will affect macroeconomic indicators. “We made a forecast of a drop in GDP from 6 to 9%, depending on how long the closed situation will last. Today, our forecast is much more optimistic: approximately minus 4.2–4.5% of GDP. Again, if a second wave does not happen, ”Gref said.

The Ministry of Economic Development in mid-June lowered its forecast for a drop in GDP in 2020 from 5 to 4.8%. The economic recovery, according to the updated macro forecast parameters, will be faster: GDP growth in 2021 is expected to reach 3.2 instead of 2.8% according to the previous estimate. In 2022, the Russian economy, according to a new assessment of the department, will grow by 2.9%, in 2023 – by 3.1%.

The media learned about the plans of the Federal Tax Service to launch new online services for paying taxes :: Economy :: RBC

The tax service expects that additional digital projects will reach hundreds of thousands of people and will save billions of rubles in business

The Federal Tax Service (FTS) has prepared a project to launch new digital products that will simplify the payment of taxes. In particular, we are talking about the development of a certification center (CA) for issuing qualified electronic signature certificates to legal entities, individual entrepreneurs and notaries, Kommersant reports.

The Federal Tax Service expects that already in 2022 the center will process 100% of the relevant requests, and the business will be able to save about RUB144 billion on this. In addition, the centralization of the issuance of a qualified electronic signature will make it easier for tax officials to maintain a unified and up-to-date register of electronic signatures.

The ministry estimated that the creation of a CA infrastructure on the basis of the Federal Tax Service data centers would cost $ 280 million, and the development of interactive services for the service under the project would cost $ 60 million.

The next project is the service of a simplified procedure for the deduction of personal income tax through the personal account of the taxpayer. It is estimated that in 2021 about 900 thousand people will be covered by this service (about 10% of the number of applicants minus a year). Kommersant points out that due to various problematic issues (insufficient number of employees of the Federal Tax Service and lack of readiness of banks for electronic information cooperation), it is only supposed to work out practice until 2022 without expanding the deduction system itself.

The third draft – a simplified procedure for registering individual entrepreneurs – will require amendments to the relevant paragraph of the law. It is planned that in December about 10 thousand individuals will be able to register through the mobile application of the online service “Personal Account of the Taxpayer for Individuals”, and next year this figure will increase to 150 thousand.
