Il-GRTU kontra l-hlasijiet imposti fuq in-negozji Maltin taht id-Data Protection Act

Din mhix ghajr taxxa ohra fuq in-negozji Maltin u burokrazija ohra imposta bla
ebda konsultazzjoni

1. Il-ligi dwar id-Data Protection hi wahda minn dawk
l-imposizzjonijiet fuq l-intraprizi Maltin li hi assulutament zejda. Il-gvern ra
kif ghamel biex waqt li jwettaq l-obligazzjonijiet li dahal ghalihom jimponi
l-ispejjez kollha fuq is-sidien tan-negozji kollha Maltin. Il-gvern qed igieghel
is-sidien ihalsu ghal xi haga li holoq il-gvern. Din hi ohra minn dawk li
l-burokratici tal-gvern jfasslu wahedhom bla konsultazzjoni ma hadd u jghabbu
n-nefqa fuq is-settur privat.



2. Is-sidien kollha qed ikunu imgieghla
jhallsu taxxa gdida skond in-numru ta’ impjegati li ghandhom ghax izommu
dettalji tal-impjegati taghom u skond kemm izommu informazzjoni tal-klijenti u
l-fornituri taghhom. Din hi informazzjoni li s-sidien tal-intraprizi huma
obligati jzommu bilfors, b’obbligu legali u taht pieni horox, inkluzi habs, jekk
l-informazzjoni ma tinzammx. Dan hu xoghol li s-sidien huma mgieghla jaghmlu
b’xejn ghas-spejjez taghhom u mill-hin misruq mix-xoghol taghhom. Issa il-gvern
qed igeghlhom wkoll ihallsu licenzja talli jghamlu dan kollu. Din hi taxxa gdida
li tibda minn Lm20 fis-sena ghan-negozji z-zghar u self-employed u titla
ghall-mijiet ta’ liri fis-sena skond kemm wiehed ihaddem. Din hi ligi ohra li
timponi multi esagerati sa Lm10,000 u tista twassal ghall-piena ta’ tlett xhur
habs.

3. L-informazzjoni li jigbru s-sidien ma jigbruhiex b’ghazla
taghhom izda hi imposta mill-ligijiet ta’ xoghol u minhabba l-ligijiet dwar hlas
ta’ taxxa tal-impjegati u minhabba l-hlas tal-kontribuzzjonijiet socjali
tal-impjegati u dettalji ohra dwar granet ta’ mard u ta’ leave tal-impjegati u
talbiet ohra skond il-ligi. Din hi kollha nformazzjoni li tingabar bilfors,
iridu u ma jridux is-sidien.

L-informazzjoni li s-sidien izommu dwar
is-suppliers taghhom u dwar il-klijenti taghhom li huma wkoll VAT registered,
tinzamm ukoll minhabba l-ligijiet fiskali ta’ pajjizna hekk jesigu. Issa talli
s-sidien jaghmlu dan kollu b’xejn huma jridu jhallsu licenzja. Din tghodd kemm
ghall-intraprizi kbar kif ukoll ghan-negozji z-zghar u self-employed ta’
pajjizna.

Wara l-weghda li ta l-Prim Ministru l-gdid, Dr Lawrence Gonzi,
li ser jikkumbatti bis-serjeta l-imposizzjoni ta’ burokrazija zejda fuq
is-sidien tal-intraprizi li l-ispejjez bla bzonn li sidien qed ikollhom, ihallsu
tort ta’ din il-burokrazija, il-GRTU issa qed tappella lil Prim Ministru biex
jipposponi t-twettiq tad-Data Protection Act, fejn jidhlu hlasijiet ta’
registrazzjoni. Il-GRTU qed tappella biex jinfethu negozjati
mal-assocjazzjonijiet kollha li jirraprezentaw lis-sidien tal-intraprizi Maltin
kollha biex titfassal ligi miftiehma li taghmel sens. Ma jistax ikun li min
ihaddem jibqa’ jigi ttrattat b’dan il-mod goff u bla sens minn amministrazzjoni
li verament temmen fl-investiment u fix-xoghol.

Il-GRTU qed tappella biex
in-negozji z-zghar ikunu ezentati ghal kollox minn din il-burokrazija zejda u
mill-hlas bla sens mitlub minnhom.
