ABSTRACT

This paper analyzed the governments role to stimulate and to control the entrepreneurship environment. During the crisis, several taxes were amended to slightly mitigate the effects of the crisis, and in 2010 the Micro–enterprise Tax Law was developed and adopted. Started from 1996 the State Revenue Service has the right to suspend the taxpayer's economic activities (natural and legal person) due to infringements of laws and regulations. Due to low tax morale after financial crises in and taxpayer’s reluctance to pay taxes in 2011 in the structure of the State Revenue Service was created of a new unit - the Tax Accounts Administration. In 2012 marked out that a part of the merchants, effectively terminating their business, are not legally dissolved and are not excluded from the Commercial Register, therefore, in 2012 essential amendments were made in the Commercial Law and in the law On Taxes and Duties – the requirements of both regulatory enactments were aligned and come into force the company’s simplified liquidation. The statistical data confirms that State Revenue Service and the government role in organizing the business environment are significant.
