Act on anonymous shares? It is easy to circumvent and deprive the state of tax

The government bill wants to do away with anonymous shares and thus reduce the scope for corruption. If the proposal was approved, will be henceforth no longer clear who is the owner, who receives income simply ownership structure would be transparent. Prime Minister Petr Necas (ODS) believes that this is a necessary condition for those who want to pursue government contracts or do business in areas where subsidies are flowing. He has to go to the next major step in the fight Nečas anti-corruption fight.

But the law will lead rather to the fact that the Minister of Finance Miroslav Kalousek (TOP 09) fewer taxes could choose from. Experts had reports that just lead the company's property abroad and no uncovering ownership structure will be made.

"With the abolition of bearer shares can be expected higher demand for secure anonymity through foreign companies," confirms Charles Pluhař of Akont Trust Company, which deals with tax advice. Adds, that it pays to save entrepreneurs shares abroad, especially in tax havens.

"The simplest way to ensure a high degree of anonymity owner was using certificated bearer shares. However, this option fits. Owners information will be recorded, which does not comply with a number of owners," described the situation Pluhař.

Already at this time, according to the news agency ČEKIA in the Czech Republic around 13,000 companies using anonymous shares. For example, if the owners of some photovoltaic decide that ascends from the shadows, simply overwrite the seat in Cyprus or Seychelles. And still no one will know where to drop billions of government subsidies and who are solar barons. In addition, Czech Republic comes to taxes, which would have done differently these companies.

Michael Friedberger, Commercial Director Akont mentioned that the Czech attempted to reveal the ownership structure is unprecedented in the European Union or in the world, the domestic model is one of the strictest. He adds that the greater the possibility of access to the information, the more direct the owners of their shares abroad. Control of the company through a Seychelles company is the Commercial Director of a cheap and effective way of compensation for bearer shares.

And the cards can still stir amendment ODS deputy Pavel Suchanek. He wants to touch the adaptation of existing anonymous shares. Who already has them, I retain it. Law would apply to new shares, you would have had to be in the name. According Suchanek is also useless to its owners reveal all companies should be concerned only those that want to do business with the state.

The government's anti-corruption fight can only stay bitter aftertaste and broken the law, which gives a further blow to the moribund Czech economy. As did the amendment of the Act on Public Procurement: according to yesterday's analysis of the law has caused a fall in GDP of 41 billion and also brought job losses twenty thousand.
