Online services for household and business tasks YouDo and Profi.ru have applied to the capital's mayor's office with a request to allow performers from their platforms to receive passes "for working citizens". Officially self-employed registered with the Federal Tax Service (FTS) will be able to issue them, officials promise, but the problem remains relevant for those who do not have such a status. The services themselves are already recording a 30–50% drop in turnover.
Online services YouDo and Profi.ru Whatsapp mobile number list applied to Alexei Fursin, Head of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of Moscow, with a request to allow the self-employed to receive permits “for working citizens” to carry out activities that are not limited by the decrees of Mayor Sergei Sobyanin. Kommersant got acquainted with a copy of the letter signed by YouDo co-founder and CEO Denis Kutergin and Profi.ru co-founder and CEO Egor Rudy. The YouDo representative and Mr. Rudy confirmed it was sent. The department did not respond to a request.
The decree of the Mayor of Moscow dated April 11 on the introduction of digital passes for movement around the city does not define the mechanism for issuing them by the self-employed for activities that are not subject to restrictions, the authors of the letter point out. Now more than 2 million performers from Moscow are registered on both platforms, most of them are not on the labor exchange and do not have labor relations. “These people work for themselves and provide various household services that are in great demand by city residents in the current situation: courier delivery, cleaning, calling plumbers, electricians and other specialists,” the letter says.
