Reporting in the field of transportation – what problematic issues exist?

How to simplify the activities of transport entrepreneurs?

An important step is the cancellation or optimization of certain types of reporting that businesses must regularly submit to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine. The review of 9 forms of mandatory reporting in the field of social security was recently carried out by the BRDO team with the support of the USAID program “Competitive Economy of Ukraine”.

What problems were identified by analysts?

  1. Duplication of the content of some reporting forms.
  2. The need to update and make changes to some statistical methodologies, in particular regarding:
    1. lack of current reporting forms as sources of information;
    2. use of outdated reporting forms;
    3. general obsolescence of certain methods (some of them were approved more than 15 years ago).

How can problems be solved?

In order to discuss the results of the analysis, an online meeting organized by the State Regulatory Service of Ukraine was held recently. Representatives of economic entities in the field of transportation, the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, the Institute of Economics and Forecasting, as well as the expert environment, joined the discussion.

The purpose of the meeting is to make informed decisions regarding the expediency, reasonableness and order of actions proposed by the experts regarding the optimization of reporting in the field of transportation. BRDO experts proposed to make the reporting itself more relevant (forms, procedure, submission deadlines), as well as some statistical methodologies.

After discussing BRDO’s proposals with stakeholders, representatives of the State Statistics Service agreed with the expediency of deregulation initiatives. Work on their implementation in practice has already begun – so we hope that carriers will soon feel the effect of reducing regulatory pressure.

The review of 9 forms of mandatory reporting in the field of social security took place within the framework of the large-scale deregulation reform that has been ongoing in Ukraine since January 2023. With the support of the USAID Program “Competitive Economy of Ukraine”, the BRDO prepares analytics on the expediency of maintaining or canceling regulations, participates in meetings of the IWG on deregulation and the development of relevant legal acts.
