The Belarussian Tax and Duties Ministry and the taxi service company Uber B.V. have signed an agreement on cooperation and interaction, the press service of the Belarusian Tax and Duties Ministry told BelTA. According to the source, the document’s implementation “will help improve the effectiveness of tax control.”
Conditions conducive to a healthy competition environment will be enabled. Transparent market conditions on the transport services market, including services rendered using information technologies, will be created. Belarusian Deputy Tax and Duties Minister Vladimir Mukvich and Uber General Manager in the Commonwealth of Independent States Alexei Stakh discussed certain aspects of practical cooperation, BelTA adds.
Sergei Mashonsky, Uber’s representative in Belarus and managing partner of the law firm Arzinger, took part in the meeting. Uber-powered taxi services are popular in Minsk and in several regions of Belarus. Uber services were made available in Minsk in November 2015. The Uber mobile app allows calling a taxi and paying for transportation using a plastic card. Uber brings together taxi users and drivers. Many companies and self-employed businessmen, who work on the transport services market in compliance with requirements of Belarusian laws, have already become Uber’s partners.
