Number of primary accounting documents to drop in Belarus

The number of types of primary accounting documents used by Belarusian businesses for economic operations will be drastically reduced, said representatives of the Belarusian Finance Ministry as they commented on the Belarus president decree “Peculiarities of using primary accounting documents” of 15 March 2011.

The decree has clearly stipulated the minimal information that any primary accounting documents must contain. Economic entities will no longer have to fill in administrative details that they do not need in existing forms.

The decree has also allowed economic entities to use any forms of primary accounting documents in the ways they find convenient for their business.

The decree is a real step on the way of considerably reducing the list of mandatory primary accounting documents and the number of administrative details they contain as it is laid down by Directive No 4, said the source.
