With the help of a single platform, the ministry plans to create a “digital profile” of companies through government and commercial sources. Thus, the government will receive an indicator of the level of assistance provided.
The authorities also want to create a so-called “digital reputation” index. Such an index will be formed on the basis of data from state systems, data from banks, as well as the very reporting of the enterprise. In the future, the index is expected to automate business approval of applications.
The information collected is also expected to help in drawing up the next steps for the development of the enterprise. It is reported that several financial institutions have already connected to the platform. In the future, the Ministry of Economy plans to connect tax services.
In particular, from July 2021, the Federal Tax Service (FTS) will begin to issue digital signatures (EDS) to companies, individual entrepreneurs and notaries free of charge. According to Vedomosti, citing a source in the Federal Tax Service, this will help to smoothly switch from issuing EDS on a commercial basis.
“Changes in the procedure for issuing digital signatures are aimed at the active development of electronic document flow in the Russian Federation,” noted Ilarion Lemetyuinen, partner of KPMG in Russia and the CIS.

Recall that digitalization has been declared one of the priority areas of development. At the end of October 2020, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that the state should become a digital platform “in the good sense of the word” due to impending competition from corporations. At the same time, the Russian Prime Minister stressed that the rapid growth in popularity of cryptocurrencies poses a threat to all financial institutions, including central banks.
Earlier, the editorial staff of BeInCrypto reported that the Federal Tax Service of Russia (FTS) is thinking about the possibility of creating a unified blockchain platform in which the uncertainty associated with the clients of credit institutions could be removed. It is assumed that banks, the Ministry of Economics, VEB.RF, the Accounts Chamber and data from the Federal Tax Service would be united in the blockchain.
