You decided to open your business andacquire the status of IP. Becoming the owner of the certificate of state registration, you become a full-fledged businessman. However, in order to conduct money transactions, it is desirable for you as an individual entrepreneur to open a bank account. You can do it in any bank. Although the existence of such an account for an individual entrepreneur is not necessary. The current legislation does not oblige him to do this. In addition, no normative document establishes the obligation of the entrepreneur to make his payments from the account. Therefore, his discovery is more likely a right than an obligation for the IP. Still, the presence of his / her account for the entrepreneur is necessary for the full implementation of trading activities. According to the law, after signing the contract with the bank, the entrepreneur is obliged to make a notice of opening a current account.
Whom he should notify, and inmandatory order? Of course, this is necessary for those state bodies for whom the IP is of interest as a taxpayer. These are each of the extrabudgetary funds (FSS and FIU) and the tax inspection.
So, during the week individualthe entrepreneur, having opened a bank account in any bank, must provide a notice of opening a settlement account to the tax authority where he is registered. The same steps should be taken when closing the account. In addition, if the entrepreneur has another bank account (bank card), where he can be credited, and his money is spent, informing the tax service about him is also mandatory.
The notification must be made in the form of a message stating that the settlement account is opened (closed) in the prescribed form, which is approved by the tax legislation.
In the event that an individual entrepreneuris registered with the FSS, then the notice of opening a FSS clearing account is also considered mandatory, and it must be provided within seven days by an approved form.
Thus, starting in 2010, eacha registered individual entrepreneur who has opened a bank account for conducting his business, is obliged to notify not only the tax service, but also extra-budgetary funds. But if there is an officially approved notification form in the FSS, the FIU does not have such a form. Therefore, a message on the opening of a settlement account with the FIU can be submitted either in the form that is accepted by the tax inspection or it is necessary to fill out a form issued by the local FIU office.
However, for the purpose of additional control,where the PI starts the account, is obliged within five days to notify both the tax authorities and the local branches of the FSS and the FIU about the opening (closing) of such an account.
Those entrepreneurs who violatethe statutory deadlines for providing information on the opening or closing of the account will be called to account. In the event that notification of the opening of a settlement account for the tax inspection is not filed by the entrepreneur on time, a fine (5000 rubles) is collected from him in accordance with the tax legislation. Overdue provision of such information to extra-budgetary funds is also fraught with an administrative fine (from 1,000 to 2,000 rubles).
In a word, as soon as you as an individualthe entrepreneur has an account opened, do not delay with the provision of information about it, breaking the law. In order to avoid a penalty, give notice of opening a checking account wherever it is required.
So, what do you need to send a message?
You must provide a form for the message in twocopies and a copy of the certificate issued by the bank on the opening or closing of the account. The information can be provided either personally by the individual entrepreneur or by his representative acting by proxy, and can also be sent by mail in the form of a registered letter.
