Don961:  The three presidencies receive an “alternative plan” for the white paper that addresses the financial crisis and saves $ 23 billion annually .. A “huge” tax package and deductions

2020-11-02   Yes Iraq: Baghdad

The Iraq Center for Legal Development (ICLD) presented 11 solutions to the current financial crisis to the three presidencies, including the imposition of a tax on the salaries of two groups, the sale of state buildings and lands, as well as taxes on telecommunications companies, airport departure fees for citizens, and an auction for the sale of currency, which is considered an alternative For the white paper, which the center described as containing paragraphs difficult to apply.

“These proposals deal with solutions and beneficial treatments for the current financial crisis that the country is going through as a result of low oil prices and the contraction of the global economy as a result of the continuing threat of the Corona pandemic and the negative impact of all of this on Iraq,” the center said in a statement.

The Center addressed “the three presidencies in an official book explaining solutions to financial problems and their implications for the various state facilities in accordance with legal and constitutional visions,” stressing “the typical white paper for economic and financial reform, and the difficulty of implementing many of its paragraphs at the present time and the need for most of the consequences of implementing its paragraphs to long time”.

The center recommended, according to its statement, to “deduct 10% of the sums transferred through private banks resulting from the auction selling the currency, as tax and customs guarantees, and to take advantage of the price difference by selling the dollar to banks by (1250) dinars to the dollar, and following up imports of oil derivatives sold by The Ministry of Oil for public and private fuel stations, imposing an airport departure fee of $ 100 per person, imposing tax insurances on mobile phone companies at a rate of 20% in advance, and on oil companies at a rate of 10%, and privatizing all companies of the Ministry of Industry, ”indicating that“ the sum The state’s savings as a result of the above measures amount to more than (23) billion dollars annually.

Below are the proposals presented by the Iraqi Center to the three presidencies

1- The currency auction carried out by the Central Bank is the only window to provide liquidity in the national currency, and despite the many observations that accompany this process, which we are not dealing with now, and despite the new management of the bank addressing some of the problems, we suggest that a 10% be deducted Tax and customs guarantees for the sums transferred through private banks, and after reviewing the approximate estimates that the aforementioned bank sells through this window, it will reach the state treasury up to six billion dollars annually.

2- To prevent speculation in hard currency and the state benefiting from the difference in price, we suggest that the dollar be sold to banks at a rate of (1,200) dinars per dollar, thus providing the state up to three billion dollars annually.

3- Follow up on imports of oil derivatives (gasoline and gasoline) sold by the Ministry of Oil through public and private petrol stations, whose fate has not been known for many years, and many former Iraqi representatives and officials have warned of this, and those imports are estimated at up to five billion dollars annually.

4- Imposing a tax on the salaries of employees and retirees whose salaries exceed (500) five hundred thousand dinars at a rate of 10%. This measure is expected to save the state treasury five billion dollars annually.

5- Imposing a fee to leave the airport, and this is what is applied in most countries of the world at the rate of (100) one hundred dollars, which increases the state’s imports up to five hundred million dollars annually.

6- Imposing tax insurances on mobile phone companies at a rate of 20%, paid in advance, and settled at the end of the fiscal year, and according to the data available to us, it will enter the state treasury one billion dollars annually.

7- Imposing tax insurances on oil companies at a rate of 10%, and according to the data available to us, it will enter the state treasury up to three billion dollars annually.

8- The privatization of all the companies of the Ministry of Industry through investment or participation with exclusively Chinese companies, as it is the only one operating in Iraq in such circumstances, and thus it is possible to employ idle labor on one side, and to preserve hard currency after issuing a decision preventing the import of goods produced on the other side.

9- Preventing the import of all agricultural products, thus encouraging Iraqi agriculture and its prosperity and preserving hard currency.

10- The use of human resources for all ministries, especially the defense, the interior and the popular crowd, to build roads, bridges, irrigation projects and residential complexes, and the experience of the Republic of Egypt is the best proof of this, especially as everyone knows that the surplus of these resources reaches at least 50% in each ministry.

11- Selling all state buildings and lands that are not utilized by the state within cities, especially commercial ones.  LINK

DeepWoodz:  Ok. We are in the process of weeding out bogus salaries which in the last couple years has grown to such a level as to literally break the bank. Next, the ports are beginning to pay off big time with all the imports being taxed. Speaking of taxes, there is fixing to be income taxes when salaries are re-instated.

Soon, instead of flaring, Iraq is working on a plan to use their massive amounts of natural gas for profit and power production. Also, they have consolidated their licensing for businesses and projects and are making revenues from that.

Also, agriculture is making big gains, especially with soybeans. Also, just using their airspace is now a source of revenues. Also, diversifying their oil by-products. Also, mining and phosphates. Also, phone company fees. Etc, etc, etc….

Finally to quote Frank and tonight’s call….article 62 is ELECTRIFYING!!! Yet another source of income. You know everyone is looking at salaries,,,,maybe just maybe that is the distraction and new sources of income is the REAL NEWS!!! If so, things are looking GREAT!

Don961:  Iraq’s budget is 5 times bigger than the UAE! .. Manar Al-Obeidi

2020-11-01

The economist Manar Al-Obaidi wrote:

The UAE approves the 2021 budget at a value of 58 billion dirhams, equivalent to 16 billion dollars

Iraq’s proposed budget for 2021 will not be less than $ 85 billion

Iraq’s budget is 5 times larger than the UAE budget

The UAE is the highest Arab country in terms of economic competitiveness and ranked 25th in the world, and Iraq was not mentioned in the global competitiveness reports

The problem is not the amount of the budget. The problem is in managing the budget for building developed countries L
