Business in Russia: small, medium, bad?

45

The bar is lower, the batch is thinner



The next inspection by the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation affected the structure, which, in fact, no longer exists - the Federal Corporation for the Development of Small and Medium-Sized Businesses SMEs. It, relying on the Federal Property Management Agency with 72 percent of the shares and the now omnipotent VEB (28 percent), starting almost from the mid-XNUMXs, had to provide uninterrupted support and, as a result, the growth and prosperity of small and medium-sized businesses.

The check that affected 2018-2020, however, resulted in a series of blows to the tails. The main thing, in my opinion, is that the corporation, which entered not so long ago, after reorganization at the top (Optimizing optimizers) to the global development institution - VEB, now there is not even a direct boss.

Ex-chairman of the corporation, Alexander Braverman, was once closely involved in privatization and even headed the all-powerful Ministry of State Property for some time. Now he works in the press service of VEB, but is listed in this global monster (attention) - as the first deputy chairman.

SMEs under Braverman, that is, since 2015, have received almost unlimited access to cheap credit resources, which they distributed to small and medium-sized enterprises under their care. The source of income was the difference in percentage plus equity participation in their projects.

All this, however, did not in the least cancel the need to regularly report on successes and failures. And it seems that the management of the SMEs reported, and not bad at all. In any case, this is exactly the impression the public should have had, judging by the corporation's website and press publications.

However, following the results of a three-year audit, the auditors of the Accounts Chamber did not even believe the press and harshly criticized the SME corporation. The salaries of its employees will be discussed below, but more importantly, the auditors have smashed all the “beautiful” reports of SMEs to smithereens.

What guarantees can there be?


They noted that SMEs simply regularly lowered the bar by setting key performance indicators (KPIs) at levels that were easy to achieve. As a result, almost all indicators were overfulfilled with planned values, in many cases - from 500 to nine thousand percent.

According to the auditors of the RF JV, the corporation did not have and does not have a long-term strategy. But this was all right - in the end, the strategy can be considered simply the growing number of enterprises, small and medium-sized, which the corporation has really helped.

But the target indicator of SME activity - the share of loans to its subjects in the total loan portfolio - has not been achieved either. So, in 2018, with the planned 19%, its value was 15%, and for the nine months of 2020 - 10% with the planned 12%. One could blame the failures on a pandemic, but why then indicate such a figure in the Development Strategy until 2030.

By all indications, the SME corporation does not issue guarantees and sureties for unsecured loans to entrepreneurs at all, although it should. Indeed, for more than five years, only 1% of the average annual amount received credit support. It's not just a failure, it's more like sabotage.

The RF JV auditors noticed that the SME corporation could increase guarantee support, but in 2016-2020 it actually paid only 1,8% of the total volume of guarantees issued to small and medium-sized enterprises.

In addition, the corporation grossly violated the very idea of ​​supporting small and medium-sized businesses - money (more precisely, guarantees and sureties) went to companies that were considered small and medium-sized only formally. In reality, however, they were safely included in the group of companies of large business, starting with Gazprom.

Over the three years (2018–2020) that the RF JV checked, at least 3,62 billion rubles were spent on fake support. Tracking the recipients of SME support was not easy, but, as we can see, the auditors somehow figured it out. In Russia, the practice of state purchases is such that almost two-thirds of them, which are allocated specifically for small businesses, are, in the end, carried out by companies that are somehow tied to business monsters, at least to the same Gazprom.

So they can't or don't want to


By the way, according to the testimony of one of the experts of the RF JV, the practice of such substitutions has long become the norm in the oil and gas sector, as well as in transport and energy. However, formally, everything was in accordance with the law in SMEs - Alexander Braverman has already stated that:

“Guarantee support or sureties were provided to small businesses solely on the basis of their inclusion in the Unified Register of SMEs”.

He also managed to note about the performance indicators of the corporation, which

"Were established by the board of directors and from 2016–2020, at the initiative of the board, were changed upwards by more than 15 times."

It is significant that the former chief SME has already provided the press with many documents from the tax service, but it is not entirely clear why the employees of the Accounts Chamber are still not familiar with them. But in the documents of the JV RF it is indicated that the SME corporation has almost no influence on the development of small business in Russia, but at the same time it overfulfills the KPI and pays the employees overstated salaries.

A very characteristic assessment of the achievements of SMEs was given by Andrey Sharonov, President of the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo, which is also quite worthy of a debriefing at the Accounts Chamber. At least the Skolkovo parent fund not so long ago successfully went under the wing of the same business monster - VEB.


Sharonov made, one might say, an exclusive statement for such a publication as the Bulletin of the Accounts Chamber - this is not a business press for you, but an almost academic one, but still official. So, in Sharonov's opinion, the coverage of small and medium-sized businesses with state support measures is clearly unsatisfactory.

But the main question, according to Sharonov, is

“Why SMEs, which consistently cite access to finance as one of the key issues, cannot or do not want to take advantage of this opportunity through the mechanisms of the SME Corporation”.

The Accounts Chamber should clearly focus on clarifying this issue, and yet understand, “can’t or don’t want to?” In any case, there is hardly a single small or medium-sized enterprise in Russia that will tell you that they have no difficulties in obtaining funds for development.

Where is the droushka?


But judging by the salaries paid to the SME corporation, they still don't want to. And to want, most likely, there is no incentive. When checking the specialized federal corporation of SMEs, the auditors of the Accounts Chamber were more confused not by the problems of small business, generally understandable, but by the income of those who are engaged in this business.

It is engaged, let us pay attention, at the state level - the SME corporation is not just some private one, but a federal one, albeit a corporatized one. The auditors of the Accounts Chamber easily found out that the average salary in the SME Corporation amounted to about 380 thousand rubles a month.

And this is without taking into account the members of the board. And this is in difficult, you see, 2018-2020 years. Even a superficial assessment of auditors is not required to understand that this is several times, or even dozens of times more than the national average. And even much more than the average salaries in banks, insurance offices and other "development institutions".

They seem to have been dispersed not so long ago, but in fact they were simply handed over to VEB. It was possible to keep silent about the board members altogether, but when a document is in front of your eyes not from someone, but from the Accounts Chamber, this does not work.

So, the board members assigned themselves a monthly remuneration for righteous labors of 3,2-3,4 million rubles. It is a little reassuring that there are only nine of these members on the Management Board of the SME Corporation, but they were enough to raise the average salary in the entire company to 600 thousand.



Even the head of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) Alexander Shokhin (pictured), another of those who three decades ago “reformed” Russia, independent of the USSR, had to comment on such achievements. I had to, since he is also a member of the same Board of Directors of the Corporation.

Shokhin admitted that

"We might think about adjusting the principles for determining the amount of remuneration for its management."

Alexander Braverman himself modestly replied to Shokhin, and at the same time to Sharonov and auditors:

"Salaries were set by the board of directors."

To ourselves, loved ones, how could it be otherwise?

On our own behalf, we add that in commercial structures it is customary to keep salaries slightly below the industry average, which does not help well to retain qualified employees. However, why we need salaries twice or three times more, you can understand only from one position - to snatch more, until they dispersed.

We already noted something similar when we wrote about the financial achievements of the top management of the Rusnano corporation, where, as you know, for several years Braverman's colleague ruled in the field of privatization - the well-known Anatoly Chubais.

However, Braverman, who has now settled in the press service of VEB, noted that

"The salaries of the Corporation's employees are comparable to the average salary in the financial sector."

However, the auditors of the RF JV figured out that this is not entirely true, or rather, not at all.

        Where is it wrong? In any state-owned enterprise, the bosses set themselves indecent salaries. And from the ceiling. And secrets from ordinary workers, they say, for ethical reasons.

        This outrage is the norm in Putin's Russia. It has not been and never will be otherwise. Because the principle reliably works - enrichment of units at the expense of the majority.

        And these people still tell us about some kind of justice and patriotism! Let me remind you that the president named patriotism the main idea of ​​the state. True, she looks last resort.

          Business in Russia: small, medium, bad?

          Business in Russia? Here it is necessary to read: "Speculation in Russia: petty, criminal and organized by the state."
          Don't give a damn about the path of development - collect it from everyone and give it to "your beloved." I believe in entrepreneurship when they organize hairdressing salons, bakeries, cafes, delivery services, dental services, etc. When, as a result of activity, “visible and tangible” is created from “nothing”.
          And in Russia, they cultivated all sorts of ways of speculation and turned it into a terry one. Here just now they discussed the topic of theft in the USSR - they say they stole worse than today. This is fundamentally wrong. Whatever it was in the USSR, no matter what "thugs" and crooks "flourished" there, no one on a state scale put 900 g of milk into a liter package. And, if sour cream was sold in jars, then there was sour cream, and not a "badyazhny" product from a mixture of some unknown reason. This is mass legalized theft.
          Such an interesting industry, which gives annually from 4 to "a lot"% of inflation and only 1-2% growth.
          The ugliest business is finance. This is a business when a person cannot save what he earned, but even keep what he earned. This is for you in "Sberbank" (which many elderly people associate with "Sberkassami") will offer a loan at 21,9% per annum and guarantee 5,6% on the deposit.
          Shokhin's vile personality has long required an investigation. It was in these circles that they came up with the idea of ​​corporatising production, instructing Chubais to announce the privatization, promising each citizen a share. Only as a result of such privatization, the shares of the most valuable industries ended up in the hands of all sorts of dealers from the party and committee nomenklatura, and the citizens got the shares of the Chekovye and other branches of the Horns and Hooves firm. And today we are told that we do not know how to live.
          Even in the USSR we “did not know how to live”. Only those "who knew how", the state (USSR) showed the sky to a large cage and put sticks on the grave mounds. And so, today, the survivors, blinded by greed and money-grubbing, marauders without conscience and honor are trying to explain to us the nuances of Russian business.
          Bravo! They still hope that we will continue to try to get (wait) from this goat:

          milk ... Completely insolent audience.
          Why won't they explain to us the “business” that exists in Russia: prostitution, drug trafficking, internet trade in shit, which is passed off as the latest gadgets? Why don't they tell you how all sorts of different "*** max" offer goods at inflated prices or the quality of which (in most cases) is determined by terms from several days to a couple of weeks (I have experience in purchasing and using)? This is the same "business" !!!
          Only business in the machine-tool industry, the electronics industry, the space industry, and the light industry is shitty. The business associated with the trade in medicines, the extraction of gold, hydrocarbons, timber has received special development ... In short, in just a hundred, you can strip three skins. This is not the same as buying tomatoes for 3 rubles / kg and reselling them at the retailer's authority in retail at 280 rubles / kg.

          This outrage is established by the exponential increase in salaries. Everyone knows that increasing “1” and “2” by the same percentage as a result can only get a larger social gap. Someone can explain why the incomes of people of unproductive labor (officials, judges, etc.) should be an order of magnitude higher than the minimum wage?
          Talking with a friend (he has a financial education), we found out that in Russia, gradually, everything works only for a certain contingent, which is by no means the most important in the development of the state.

Often not at all with a capitalist consciousness, but with a completely feudal one, although they like to accuse others of slave psychology. With a complex of inferiority to the West. Second-rate, deeply secondary in comparison with Western society, but at the same time, in relation to compatriots, they are arrogant and imagining themselves to be cultural traders and visionaries.

    The result of 30 years of business in Russia is that business is monstrously ineffective and unprofitable for Russia and the Russian people, and beneficial only for the businessmen and oligarchs themselves, and for some other categories around them.

    Business has no epithets; only shadow business can be called bad. A business run by the state can hardly be called a business. It is a direct path to corruption. We have not even figured out which money is dirty, which is clean. Laws are invented like a bicycle.

          \ dauria \ Finally, someone noticed that in our country there is no "basis" for normal constructive opposition - the complete absence of a visible legal economic struggle does not make it possible for local movements to grow up without external economic and political support (which kills any politician on the fly) movements with an alternative program development of the country. This is very unpleasant for the existence of a stateunder any leader, we will have two opinions - the point of view of the president (head of government) and the wrong

          You had such sensible comments, and here it is.

          Do you think that the exploitation of man by man is a good thing? I personally don't think so.

          Okay, now a serious question for you. Russia and China are different from the rest of the cap. countries one interesting point - there are no strikes. From the word at all. This is clearly not normal. It's clear with Russia. But what will happen to the Chinese economy next in such a state of power and the people? I would like to hear your opinion. No kidding.

            The comment has not been preserved. But if, in short, the opinion of the layman is that. There are strikes in China, only they are not as well-known as European ones and as far as I know, they are not as massive. China has significant advantages through government planning. If China is not stopped, it will seize hegemony from the United States. There is nothing good in this for us. We will only get an even tougher exploitation of our country of peripheral capitalism. Capitalist China can be seen in its foreign and domestic policies. Until it runs into a crisis and as long as there is an increase in the well-being of the average Chinese, there will be no serious confrontation between the people and the government. But this is trivial.

              I believe that society cannot be built without it. Anything from the primitive communal to the USSR. And I call it differently - the exchange of goods. Where labor is also a commodity. Otherwise, the fate of the Lykov family is to live in the taiga.
              There are two sides to a trade. They are always fighting. Sell ​​more expensive, buy cheaper. The main thing is balance in this struggle. Neither side must win irrevocably. Unity and struggle of opposites. laughing The communists remember about the struggle, but they forget about the unity. They win - so what? But nothing, some of the winners are simply obliged to turn into the "opposite", the very "exploiters". And at the same time sing about "the unity of the party and the people." (Well, or about "democracy", where or how) Otherwise, the system will collapse like a star without hydrogen fuel. Or it will explode at last.
              I asked about the strikes for a reason. This is a sign of a struggle. This means that both in the former USSR and in the present-day RF or China
              something is wrong with dynamic balance. The "asterisk" would not have exploded.

                This is not how it works. As the productive forces develop, production relations change. Socio-economic formations are replaced accordingly. Now the growth of labor productivity leads to the fact that capitalist relations are becoming obsolete.

                I believe that we and China have such a state of the strike movement, local specifics. Firstly, it is connected with the mentality of the people who are used to overcoming the most difficult circumstances and not so long ago healed more or less decently, therefore, the relative inconveniences and a slight drop in the standard of living are tolerated quite easily. Secondly, there is a strong trade union movement in the West. It certainly sank there over the years of a well-fed life, but nevertheless it is still strong enough to organize very large-scale actions in a coordinated manner. In our country, in the USSR, in fact, it was purely a decoration. I don't know about China. In the country of the victorious proletariat from whom was it to defend the proletariat? And in the same form it passed to the Russian Federation. In fact, the overwhelming majority of trade unions do not defend the rights of an employee. And this is quite suitable for our domestic correct capital.

                I'm not afraid for China anymore. Let the Chinese fascists think about this under red flags. I am many times more worried about the Russian Federation, where there are a lot of problems, and they are solved a year by a teaspoon, with an awesome level of corruption at all levels and a crappy quality of leadership on average. Where the guardians sing about how we flourish, but in fact, a sluggish dregs with individual ups and inevitable subsequent falls. Take the same situation with sugar. Last year, from every iron rushed how we developed the sugar industry, not like in a dull scarcity scoop. And this year, such an epic epic file refusal. There is no tomorrow and even the day after tomorrow we will definitely not die, but I don’t see the brilliant prospects about which every protective propaganda scum is talking to us. So far, the trends are only for bourgeois coups, further impoverishment of the population and the collapse of the country.

    Yes, this does not matter to small business. The country has two parallel economies. One is citizens, small and medium-sized businesses, and the other is a large-scale man and a ruling clan. The second one lives almost exclusively at the expense of the first one and in conditions of fair competition would be deeply unprofitable. The situation is almost similar to the pre-war States.

        I was referring to the position of the States before the Civil War. There, too, there was an economic demarcation of the North and the South, like we have - the Kremlin and the rest of Russia, 60 families and other Russians.

    I don't understand what can be complicated and muddy in the scheme - the office distributes loans to businesses in such a way that in the end it goes to "+" in a year, two, three. If the office did not come out in "+" severe uncles come and begin to treat everyone who relates to the authorities in any way. And they process it until the office goes to "+". All these rolling of pieces of paper in the late Byzantine style is empty, everything is like in nature - an activity is useful if it is profitable for the initiator (that is, the state).

    I applied to SMEs for a loan) They agreed to give it, as much as one and a half percent below the market, that is, banks. That is, the percentage of loans for a real small business entity remained blocking as before. On the other hand, the SME representation wanted the security of the loan, which even the Sberbank did not require. In fact, to receive two million rubles, it was required to provide liquid property "at least" for ten million.
    Our city is not large, so I asked around) Will anyone be surprised by the information that some firms owned by some people received such loans, providing one clerical desk as collateral, and then they did not give these loans at all? The standard method of the state is to announce "support for entrepreneurship", supporting the pockets of oneself and friends. Anyone else NEVER gets any support.
    Hehe ...
