Business news digest for October

From October 1, the electronic hospital system was fully operational

From now on, all health care facilities will issue e-hospitals, which will be divided into two parts:

  • A medical report, which will be formed after a doctor's examination, and will contain a general diagnosis. To do this, the doctor creates it in the Register and signs the EDS. After that, the hospital is entered in the Register of the Pension Fund (PFU). 
  • In the future, an electronic certificate of incapacity for work is formed, on which payments are accrued. 

The employee will receive a notification about the formation of both documents. The employer can check the hospital on the PFC portal.

Also from October 1, 2021, automatic overload fines came into force

From now on, the WiM (weight in motion) platform will automatically detect vehicle overload and send data to the Data Center. After that, the inspector will check them, form a resolution and send them to the violator (car owner). 

The fines apply to all vehicles of Ukrainian and foreign carriers engaged in road transport of passengers and goods on the territory of Ukraine, as well as to shippers. 

Legal entities have extended the deadline for disclosure of final beneficiaries 

We will remind that earlier the enterprises were obliged to submit information on ownership structure till October 11 of this year. Failure to provide this information could result in a fine of UAH 17,000. 

However, on October 8, the Verkhovna Rada adopted relevant amendments to the Law “On Prevention and Counteraction to Legalization (Laundering) of Proceeds from Crime, Financing of Terrorism and Financing of the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction” and extended the deadline for disclosure of information about the ultimate beneficial owners for another 9 months - until 11.07.2022.
