28.02.2017 CHAMBER’S SPRING BALL

28.02.2017 Plan to Impose Road Tax on Trucks Has Improved

A while ago, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communication proposed establishing a road tax on Estonian and foreign vehicles that weigh over 12 tons. Back then, the Chamber agreed to support the proposal only provided that the entire tax revenue received would be used for management of state roads and local roads. The Ministry has informed the Chamber that this condition will be introduced into the draft act. However, so far, the Chamber’s proposal to decrease the fee rates has not been taken into account.

28.02.2017 Guard Time Rules to Become More Flexible

The Chamber is against the proposal of the trade unions to allow for establishing more flexible guard time conditions (time, payment) with only extended collective agreements. In the Chamber’s opinion, this proposal serves only the interests of trade unions, but does not solve today’s problem. Additionally, the applicable provision for extending collective agreements contradicts the Constitution. Therefore the Chamber considers it necessary to establish more flexible guard time conditions in the Employment Contracts Act.

28.02.2017 Planned Packaging Excise Duty Does Not Solve Current Problems

The Chamber does not support the state’s plan to impose for entrepreneurs the packaging excise duty on bringing to the market because in the Chamber’s opinion, it does not help the environmental goals set in the law’s drafting intentions. On the contrary, establishing a new tax places excessive administrative and tax burden on entrepreneurs, increases the probability of avoiding the law and is primarily meant for filling the state treasury.

31.01.2017 The State Will Be Collecting Time-Based Road Use Fee from 12-ton Trucks

The Chamber has sent an opinion to the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communication in regarding the drafted plan to start taxing the use of roads by trucks. Namely, the state is planning to start collecting a time-based road use fee from trucks that weigh over 12 tons. The Chamber is ready to support such plan of the state, provided that the entire revenue from such fee is used for road maintenance and development of road transport. This solution is an opportunity to increase financing of road maintenance by an additional 16 million euros per year. Additionally, the Chamber is of the opinion that the annual rates of the road use fee should be lower than planned and promote the use of environmentally friendly trucks.

31.01.2017 The Chamber to the Government: the Principles of Good Legislative Drafting Must Be Followed
