Shell Bulgaria Chair Slaveykova Criticizes Excise Duty Act Changes
The Country Chair of Shell Bulgaria, Kamelia Slaveykova, has slammed the changes in the Excise Duties and Tax Warehouses Act as being anti fair competition.
Slaveykova, in an exclusive interview for Novinte.com, said that “unfortunately there are still areas in which the local legislation is not in line with the EU practice, which creates serious problems for the correct and loyal players on the market and directly affects the considerations for future investments in the country.”
She added that “a recent example is the latest changes in the Excise Duties and Tax Warehouse Act. They lead to introduction of administrative and bureaucratic barriers associated with additional costs for business without contributing to a better and more effective control by the customs administration…In our view the changes in the Excise Duties and Tax Warehouses Act seriously undermines the principles of free and fair competition and free movement of goods within the EU.”
Meanwhile, Slaveykova also said that the commercial road transport sector in Bulgaria had been affected badly by the financial crisis; “Shell is traditionally strong in commercial transport fuel sales and with the euroShell card service we have a very good view of what is happening. We can say that the impact of economic crisis and the reduction of fuel consumption was felt most strongly by the commercial road transport sector.”
