Bulgaria Promises Action On Offshore Companies


Bulgaria's Minister of Finance Petar Chobanov has said that he supports legislative changes to ensure the transparency of offshore companies, although he cautioned that such companies should not be stigmatized. He further promised that information about Bulgarians with offshore companies would be made public "if and when" he received it, and he explained that he would be taking part in a discussion about offshore companies at an upcoming ECOFIN meeting.

It was recently reported that Chobanov intended to raise the issue of offshore Bulgarian-owned companies with his Cypriot counterpart.

Chobanov made the comments during a media interview about managing Bulgaria's budget. Noting that Bulgaria’s GDP was down by BGN1.5bn (USD1bn), he explained that there were currently no plans to revise the budget, but that expenditure would be optimized. He said that he was working with current revenue administration teams, but that he would consider making replacements depending on performance.

He also called for an end to the "administrative extortion" of businesses, and warned that the business environment needed to be "stimulated." In particular, he said a proposal for a minimum wage needed to be judged against possible negative effects on competitiveness.
