Traders of So-Called Khopi Bazroba in Batumi Went on Strike

01.12.2013
 
Maka Malakmadze, Adjara

Traders stopped working in every shop of the Bazroba (market). They protested demand on using check-apparatus in the shops. As traders said, on November 26, employees of the Tax Service verbally warned them to work with cash apparatus.

“How can I use cash apparatus when I do not have financial circulation of 40 000 lari and my trading space is not more than 9 sq. meters. Clients do not enter here and I do not sell anything,” a trader Nino Baladze said.

“We cannot purchase cash apparatus. We cannot even pay bank debts. We do not even earn enough money for bread. The taxes are too high. 70% of our profit is spent on custom fees and taxes. Let them not request us to use cash machines or we will start large-scaled demonstrations,” Lia Beridze said.

There are about 2 500 traders in Khopa Bazroba. They are leasers of the Trading Center 2009. In accordance to the Tax Code passed on September 17, 2010, traders are entitled to use cash apparatus. But protester traders intend to continue demonstrations unless their requests are satisfied.
