Fiscal and Consumer Aspects” in which employers' and branch organizations, CPC, popular online marketplaces, ad platforms and consumer organizations participated.

BGN 25 million of income from online business mainly of individuals were declared in the last few months after the NRA campaign to monitor the imposed payments through courier companies. According to the experts of the NRA, the approach of promotion and informing works no less successfully than the control mechanisms, as the campaign for notifying individuals receiving amounts of imposed payment has been very successful.
