What do you think about off­shores?

Kyiv Post - - National - WITH DENYS KRASNIKOV KRASNIKOV@KYIVPOST.COM

Alla Yer­mak 34, sales man­ager

"As a con­sci­en­tious cit­i­zen, I’m against off­shores. It’s un­eth­i­cal. I un­der­stand, though, that the leg­is­la­tion, tax­a­tion and work­ing con­di­tions in Ukraine of­ten force peo­ple to run com­pa­nies from abroad."

Ana­toly Avdeev 33, en­tre­pre­neur

"If off­shores ex­ist, then there’s a rea­son – they help the busi­ness. I don’t see any prob­lems with them. It’s bet­ter to use off­shores than to be cor­rupt."

Iryna Cha­ban 29, man­ager

"My in­come and sphere of ac­tiv­ity make it ir­rel­e­vant for me to talk about off­shores com­pa­nies."

An­drii Kalash­nyk 29, mar­ket­ing spe­cial­ist

"Why should a com­pany pay more tax if it can legally pay less? That’s what off­shores do, and they work."

An­drii Sokolov 22, IT spe­cial­ist

"I don’t see what’s so shame­ful about off­shores. If I needed to choose be­tween a good lawyer or ut­ter cor­rup­tion – in fact, both are used to op­ti­mize tax pay­ments – I’d choose lawyers and off­shores."

Igor Stol­nit­sky 38, tech en­tre­pre­neur

"Off­shores are a rea­son­able scheme to op­er­ate busi­ness, in­clud­ing a Ukrainian one. Off­shores save money. Ev­ery­body in the world un­der­stands it."
