Prague, Nov 24 (CTK) – Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka (Social Democrats, CSSD) wants to discuss the changes to the electronic sales registration (EET) Finance Minister Andrej Babis (ANO) proposed on Wednesday at a government meeting on Monday, he told daily Blesk.

He said Babis should assure the government that he will not make any more proposals in this respect.
Sobotka’s advisers will study the proposed changes until Monday.

Sobotka criticises mainly the way in which Babis presented the changes.

The proposals caused a rift at a meeting of the government coalition on Wednesday. Sobotka said the proposal angered him.
The pilot stage of the EET is to apply to restaurants and hotels as from December 1. Other branches will gradually join it next year.

Babis wants to propose to the Chamber of Deputies that tradespeople who pay flat expense write-offs and whose annual business revenues do not exceed 250,000 crowns be exempted from the system.

Another change would concern e-shops where the system would not apply to on-line payments with a card. Sobotka is more accommodating to this proposal.

He told Blesk on Thursday that Babis behaved chaotically on Wednesday. He only distributed a sheet of paper with his proposals to the government coalition partners, or the CSSD and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL).

“I consider it unfair to tax-payers. He should better explain it if he is submitting it so late,” Sobotka said.
He said Babis has adversely affected the launch of the EET and played into the hands of the opposition.
The opposition has long criticised the prepared system and it would like to abolish.
