  • [01] SEV: Eliminate 230 obstacles to business

    (ANA-MPA) -- The Federation of Hellenic Enterprises (SEV) on Wednesday unveiled a detailed report listing, one by one, of what it cited as 230 bureaucratic obstacles and added costs blocking entrepreneurship in the debt- and deficit-plagued country.

    The report was presented to Development and Competitiveness Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis by SEV President Dimitris Daskalopoulos.

    Amongst the high-profile proposals are work on Saturday with supplementary time off, along with a proposal for overtime work offset by an overall reduction of working time.

    As regards labour relations, SEV suggests the reduction by half (from 8 to 4 pct) of the percentage of mandatory hirings concerning special categories of employees (the handicapped, heads of large families etc), revision of the so-called "hazardous and heavy" professions list and a reduction of social insurance contributions. (ANA-MPA)

    SEV also reiterates its standing criticism of excessive bureaucracy, citing scores of state interventions in the economy. It suggests, among others, abolition of fees and tax stamps, including the mandatory registration of businesses to relevant chambers, and the publication of business balance sheets in newspapers. Moreover, it calls for the abolition of the advertisement tax in favor (ANA-MPA) of media pension funds (aggeliosimo) and the ERT levy (public radio and television) collected through a surcharge on power bills. In addition, all surcharges in favor of third parties included in prescription medicine prices, tuition fees, shipping fares, fuel prices, theatre tickets, olive oil prices and candles (in support of the clerics' fund) - to name a few - should be abolished, SEV states.
