The principles of the draft law on capital liberalization and tax stimulation appear counter to the objectives of the authorities’ economic reform program supported by the International Monetary Fund, IMF Resident Representative in Moldova Armine Khachatryan says in a press line on the tax amnesty law, IPN reports.

In particular, the law, in its current form, weakens anti-corruption measures and will impede the fight against money laundering and fraud. We will continue our dialogue with the authorities on how best to reconcile this legislation with the stated objectives of the program,” the IMF Resident Representative says in her message.

“Our experience shows that successful tax amnesties are very hard to design, and we prefer to explore the scope for improving tax administration as a tool for bringing about greater taxpayer compliance and a fight against informality.”

The World Bank has also examined the draft law on capital liberalization and tax stimulation, which is also called the tax amnesty law, and identified a number of integrity risks in it.

In an interview earlier, Speaker of Parliament Andrian Candu said the law will not be passed in the final reading until the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and European institutions do not state their views on it.
