I do freelance counseling and assistance for clients who want to get European funds for agriculture development. I got one client who wanted a project to develop his family farm. We had gotten quite far into the preparation when he drops this jewel on me:
Client: What do you mean? I have to sell and buy all my stuff with legal documents?
Me: Well, yes, of course! You will have regular control and audit visits when they will check your company papers.
Client: Then I have to give bills for everything I sell and pay taxes…how am I supposed to make a profit that way?
Me: Yes, you will have to do that, just like any other economic operator. It`s required by law.
Client: Then just drop it, I`m not going to cut down my profit.
