Ways to withdraw earnings freelancers and other Internet entrepreneurs - Profit Hunter

The financial activities of freelancers, webmasters, arbitragers, online casino players, investors and other categories of people are becoming increasingly state-controlled. For this reason, many decide to go "into the shadows" and withdraw money from electronic wallets unofficially.

The fact is that the tax inspectorate receives information about a nominal bank account if a one-time transfer of funds exceeds 600 thousand rubles from a payment system like WebMoney, Yandex. Money, etc. In addition, if the same amount comes in parts within a month, then the data is also transferred to the inspection. If you are interested in your banking financial operations, then data on transfers from electronic payment systems for the last 3 years will be transferred to law enforcement agencies. In the Russian Federation, bank secrecy has already been canceled, and if earlier banks could refuse to transfer account information to state agencies, now they are obligated to do so on request.

There are 2 ways out of the situation.

    1. Withdrawing legally through a bank card, having been registered as an individual entrepreneur, or declaring incomes at 13% as an individual.
    2. Withdrawing funds, bypassing banks, opening accounts offshore or making purchases over the Internet (which carries certain risks).
