The budgetary code will develop on Severo -

Parliaments of St.-Petersburg and Leningrad region have made the West in the offer State Duma on change of the Russian Federations of amendments brought by the government to the Budgetary code, concerning norms of distribution of incomes of privatisation. Regions protest against a principle of the centralised distribution of incomes of privatisation on which insists the Ministry of Finance: Leningrad region suggests to keep the mechanism operating now, St.-Petersburg demands bolshej independence in questions of privatisation for bezdotatsionnyh regions.
the bill About modification of the Budgetary code regarding regulation of budgetary process and a recognition become invalid for separate acts of the Russian Federation has been considered by the government of St.-Petersburg, and also parliaments of this region and Leningrad region - yesterday regions declared entering into the State Duma of own offers. Both regions are dissatisfied with the amendment developed by the Ministry of Finance to the Budgetary code (BK) according to which incomes of privatisation of the state and municipal property in full should be enlisted in the federal budget.

the new norm replaces cancelled item 43 BK according to which a transfer order in the federal budget of the received means, specifications of their distribution between budgets of different levels, and also the sizes of expenses for the organisation of the auctions are regulated not BK, and the federal law on privatisation. This law, which reforming is a subject of disagreements between the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of economic development and trade, allows not only to refund operatively to sellers expenses on the organisation and privatisation carrying out, but also to pay to them bonus following the results of the auctions spent by it. According to opinion of St.-Petersburg and Leningrad region, liquidation of the operating mechanism will lead to impossibility of use of market tools at state property sale to decrease in efficiency of sales, delay of calculations and as a result to decrease in receipts in the budget .

Objecting to the centralised distribution of privatisation incomes, both subjects of federation insist on the contradiction of the mechanism offered by the Ministry of Finance to spirit most BK, directly declaring a principle of independence of budgets . As additional argument the governor of St.-Petersburg of Valentine Matvienko specifies on approved by the government of the Russian Federation the concept of reforming of budgetary process on 2004 - 2006, which essence consists in displacement of accents from management of budgetary resources (expenses) to management of results by increase of responsibility and expansion of independence of participants of budgetary process .

However, unlike Leningrad region which only supports preservation the developed system Distributions of incomes of privatisation, the Petersburg authorities suggest the State Duma to legalise the differentiated approach to subjects of federation. To the subjects who are not receiving grants from Federal fund of financial support (FFFP), the city suggests to allow to regulate independently a transfer order in the budget of privatisation means. As marks Valentine Matvienko, such approach is directly provided BK, establishing financial restrictions for regions, dotiruemyh from FFFP (in particular, on the size of payment to work of state employees), stimulating subjects to most effective utilisation of budgetary funds and creation of mechanisms of replenishment of the budget .

Besides, Leningrad region demands to return to regions the lost incomes of tobacco excises. Referring that losses of area from centralisation of tobacco excises by the Ministry of Finance in 2006 (6,7 mlrd rbl.) Also have led to budgeted deficit growth, representatives of region suggest to divide these incomes fifty-fifty between federal and regional budgets.

anyhow, from negotiations with the Ministry of Finance which on - former insists on the further centralisation of tax and privatisation incomes, regions address directly in the State Duma. Most likely, Valentina Matvienko will lobby cancellation of initiatives of the Ministry of Finance and in Presidential Administration.

continues to watch succession of events.
