Dinar Investor says():oh like FDIC? Is there any ink on that being done already? I don't remember
rcookie says():THE IMF HAS TOLD THEM AS THEY CREATED BUDGET TOGETHER (WAS CO AUTHORED) THEY MUST HAVE CERTAIN NON OIL REVENUES...THAT MUST COME FROM CERTAIN AREAS PERCENTAGE WISE...
AND TO COUNTER BALANCE....CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF NON OIL EXPENDITURES......THIS IS IN THE "FISCAL PROGRAM 2016" SECTION NO.25 (PAGE 7)....
larrykn says():gm sassy, yes that is important we might have to wait till parliment gets back to see some of these laws
sassy says():dinar Investoe yes that one. Have not seen that one passed
rcookie says():Fiscal Program in 201625. On October 18, 2015, the government approved a draft budget for 2016 with a non-oil primary deficit of ID 78 trillion (57 percent of non-oil GDP) with a large amount of foreign financing.
In light of the adverse market conditions (¶10), the government decided to reduce its foreign financing forecast and introduced amendments to the 2016 draft budget to parliament on December 2, 2015 that target a slightly lower non-oil primary fiscal deficit of up to ID 77 trillion (56 percent of non-oil GDP; prior action for management approval, Table 2) with financing tilted towards domestic sources.
This will be achieved through the implementation of the following measures:
sassy says(8:10 AM):larrykn yes I am sure and when do they come back?
rcookie says():AND THIS IS WHY TARIFFS ARE NOT AN OPTION......
larrykn says():feb 6 I believe
sassy says():larrykn thanks
rcookie says():* collect at least ID 8.8 trillion (6.5 percent of non-oil GDP) in non-oil revenue, out of which ID 1 trillion from an increase in wage taxation; and
rcookie says():BY THE BUDGET...THEY MUST COLLECT AT LEAST 8.8 TRILLION IQD IN NON-OIL REVENUE OF WHICH ONLY 1 TRILLION CAN COME FROM THE WAGE TAX INCREASES!!!!
larrykn says():so the rest comes from investments, agucalture tariffs ?
jd says():How would you like being the lucky person colleting thoose taxes from the Iraqian people??
rcookie says():WHERE DO YOU THINK THE REST IS COMING FROM....LOOK AT THE BUDGET....NON OIL REVENUE STREAM OPTIONS ARE N OT EXACTLY FREE FLOWING....
rcookie says():AND HERE IS BACKSIDE...NON OIL EXPENDITURES...
rcookie says():contain non-oil primary expenditure to ID 86 trillion (63 percent of non-oil GDP). This containment of non-oil primary expenditure at a level slightly higher than the low level programmed in 2015 will be obtained again mostly by the postponement of lower-priority non-oil investment projects to later years.
rcookie says():SO THEY ARE PUSHING OFF SOME OF THE NON OIL INVESTMENT PROJECTS TO LATER YEARS.....FISCALLY SOUND...CANT SPEND ON SOMETHING YOU CANT PAY FOR.....WOW!! WHAT A CONCEPT!!!
rcookie says():THERE IS NOT A SINGLE ITEM...AS YOU GO THROUGH THE NUMBERED MANDATE BULLET POINTS....THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN IRAQ....EVER

As a first step, the Ministry of Planning will complete, by end-February 2016, a survey of domestic arrears on investment spending accumulated by all ministries as of end-September 2015 (structural benchmark, Table 2) and the Ministry of Finance will complete a survey,
also by end-February, on current spending arrears accumulated by the same units as of end-September; in addition, similar surveys of arrears as of end-December 2015 by end-March 2016, and as of end-March 2016 by end-May 2016 will be completed.
On the basis of each of these surveys, the government will prepare plans for the orderly payment of the arrears, which will include an independent audit of the arrears and a repayment schedule in line with the government’s financing capacity.
As of end-April 2015, the government identified ID 7.3 trillion in domestic arrears, out of which ID 5 trillion accumulated in 2015 (¶13); the Board of Supreme Audit will audit these arrears to check th

rcookie says():Take steps to move to a Treasury Single Account (TSA); as a first step, the Ministry of Finance and the CBI will, by end-February 2016, compile a list of all bank accounts controlled by the Ministry of Finance and all spending units and sub spending units of the federal government,
in CBI, state-owned and commercial banks; details should include balances at end-December 2015, account number, title, location, purpose, authority, and signatories (structural benchmark, Table 2).
