Chisinau, 1 September /MOLDPRES/ - About 80 per cent of the former patentees have switched to independent work. Thus, 3,319 people out of those 4,202 former patentees complied with the new rules and work with cash registers. The Economic Development and Digitalization Ministry (MDED) presented data to this effect today.     

According to the quoted source, one fourth out of those who switched to the new form of activity in the last week is from the Balti city, where a level of compliance of 67 per cent is recorded. A rate of more than 90 per cent of compliance is registered in Ungheni, Straseni, Soroca, Leova, Ialoveni, Floresti, Falesti, Criuleni, Calarasi and Cahul. The rate of licence holders who switched to independent work in Chisinau, Anenii Noi, Cimislia, Hancesti and Rascani is of more than 80 per cent. The lowest rate is in Briceni, 52 per cent.    

According to data from 31 August, 3,195 applications were submitted in all, through which former patentees demanded compensations at the Organization for Entrepreneurship Development (ODA). The money has been already transferred for 1,031 applications. There are only two weeks left, during which those who buy cash registers can demand the sum of up to 10,000 lei (500 euros) for the transition expenses. The compensation can be demanded till 15 September, with the period extended by the government by two weeks.   

Starting from 1 July this year, the activity of retail trade at market stalls, counters, stands, in booths, pavilions and vehicles, as well as the commerce with native food products and easily perishable goods is no longer allowed based on licence. The former patentees, who switch to independent activity, can ask for compensation worth 10,000 lei (500 euros) - money which will be able to be used for buying cash registers or arranging the working place.
