Chisinau, 7 December /MOLDPRES/ - The mayoralties’ employees might benefit from non-taxable monthly allowances worth 40 per cent of the basic salary. The parliament’s commission for public administration considered a draft to this end at a meeting today.
The document sees the establishment of non-taxable monthly allowances for the staff of the local public authorities employed in accordance with the organization chart approved by the State Chancellery. The references indexes of the allowance are to be set by the local councils and will not be able to exceed 40 per cent of the annual sum of the basic salaries.
Also, the commission members propose the amendment of the indexes as to the administrative capacity of the local public administration from 30 to 50 per cent. Thus, if the mayoralty’s administrative expenses do not exceed 50 per cent of its own incomes and deductions from state taxes, the mayoralty will have right to provide the non-taxable monthly allowance to all employees, according to the organization chart.
The authors of the legislative initiative – a group of MPs of the Action and Solidarity Party (PAS), say that the amendments suggested will enhance the managerial capacity of the local authorities, giving them more freedom and flexibility in the management of financial resources, as well as human ones, so that the local authorities are able to provide opportunities of training, adaptation, increase in the remuneration of their own staff, as well as the perspectives in the career.
According to the authors, following the amendments, the employees from about 120 mayoralties will be able to benefit from non-taxable monthly allowances. These allowances could be provided also by other local public authorities, which will observe the indexes concerning the administrative capacity.
