The investment portal, which integrated all the institutes and funds for the support and development of entrepreneurship, is launched in Bashkiria. Yesterday it was presented to the head of the republic, Radiy Khabirov. The Interim Chairman of the State Committee for IT Development and the Open Republic Functioning Gennady Razumikin said that the website had two sections: for investors and business. The website contains all the information about Bashkortostan, about the benefits and support measures that investors receive in the republic. Here you can see the available free land plots, their assignment. A beginner entrepreneur can use the website to open his/her business, obtain the necessary documents, register it with the tax service, get online advice from the specialists of the State Committee on Entrepreneurship.
All the information about government support measures, subsidies, and loans for small businesses is available on the website. The head of the administration of Bashkortostan, Alexander Sidyakin, explained that at the second stage, the website would start working in a new format. An entrepreneur, having created his personal account, can upload all the data there and, banks or departments will receive all the information about his business using his TIN before giving him a grant or loan. For example, a farmer will not need to apply to departments or banks to get one or another measure of financial support. It will be enough to leave a request on the portal and find out about the decision made there.
“Thus, we exclude the human factor and the possible corruption component. We interviewed businessmen of the republic for demanded types of services and found out that there are 80 of those. In Bashkortostan, only 21 services have been implemented in electronic form today. The remaining 59 will also appear on the investment portal of Bashkortostan over the next three months, ”said Alexander Sidyakin.
The head of the State Committee for IT Development explained that investors and businessmen can now submit their applications for participation in the Entrepreneurship Hour sessions, which are held in districts and cities of the republic. To date, 1060 applications have already been submitted with investment projects totaling 240 billion rubles. The business portal will work to the full in November of this year.
Radiy Khabirov praised the work done to create the investment portal and noted that a useful tool had been created for small and medium businesses, as well as for investors.
