So, for one reason or another, you have decided to stop operating as an individual entrepreneur. To do this, you need to comply with the procedure established by law for the liquidation of an individual entrepreneur. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to close the sole proprietor in one day. In practice, the entire procedure for termination of the individual entrepreneurship activity takes from 3 months.
Let's consider the "ideal" algorithm for the termination of the sole proprietor's activity by the decision of the entrepreneur himself (when the sole proprietor does not have difficulties paying off debts to creditors and does not need to initiate an economic insolvency procedure).
There will be no inspections under the coordination plan until 2019.
Before submitting the necessary documents to the registration authority, check whether you are included in the coordination plan of control activities.
The coordination plan is a list of organizations in respect of which the authorized state bodies will conduct an audit within the specified time frame.
You can get acquainted with the coordination plan for the next six months on the website of the State Control Committee of the Republic of Belarus. The document in question (for Minsk and the regions) is publicly available on the Internet and is available at the link: http://www.kgk.gov.by/ru/coordination-plans-ru/.
If you are there, then you will have to wait for the scheduled inspection to be carried out and completed, because you cannot stop your activities before such an inspection is completed due to the direct prohibition of legislation.
If you are not in the plan, go ahead with the algorithm.

The information will already be on the magazine's website no later than 18-00 the next working day.
The information about the liquidation posted on the journal's website will later be published in the next issue of the appendix to the legal scientific and practical journal "Justice of Belarus".
Is it possible not to publish information on the site?
The publication of information about the liquidation of an individual entrepreneur on the website is mandatory, because the information about the liquidation posted on the journal's website will be a confirmation of the fact of their publication when the registering authority makes a decision to make an entry in the Unified State Register on the exclusion of an individual entrepreneur from it.
We carry out an inventory of all the property of the sole proprietor and the obligations of the sole proprietor. According to the results of the inventory, an act is drawn up.
We send a notice to creditors on the termination of the individual entrepreneur's activities, in which we indicate the date of publication of information on the termination of the individual entrepreneur's activities and the deadline for filing creditors' claims (2 months, as much as possible).
Notification of creditors is necessary in order for them to present creditors' claims to the sole proprietor if there is a debt owed to them.
We have already mentioned in Step 3* that the Ministry of Justice sends a notification to all interested bodies about the termination of your activity as an individual entrepreneur.
Within 30 working days from the date of receipt of such notification, the interested authorities send certificates of absence of debt to the registration authority:
tax authorities - a certificate of the presence (absence) of debt to the budget;
FSZN - a certificate of the presence (absence) of debt to this Fund;
customs authorities - a certificate of the presence (absence) of debt to the budget and information on the presence (absence) of obligations not terminated to the customs authorities;
Belgosstrakh - a certificate of the presence (absence) of arrears on compulsory insurance against industrial accidents and occupational diseases.
Creditors, having received a notification from the sole proprietor about the termination of activities, send the claims of the creditors to the sole proprietor.
Based on the creditors' claims submitted to the sole proprietor, register of creditors' claims is compiled.
After that, the sole proprietor repays the existing debt to its creditors, and also collects accounts receivable from its debtors.
Reception and storage of documents are carried out by territorial (city or district) archives of local executive committees. It is there that we must transfer all the necessary documents, including personnel documents confirming the length of service and remuneration of employees.
On the example of Minsk: documents are transferred to the State Institution "Minsk City Archive" (Minsk, Beruta str., 20, tel. 256-16-67, 256-16-68).
Sole proprietors archive the following documents:
The rules of registration and transfer of documents must be clarified at the archival institution where the documents will be submitted.
To prepare documents for submission to the archive on a contractual basis, it is possible to involve archive staff.
The final package of necessary documents to the registration authority looks like this:
The sole proprietor has no debt. All documents are provided. With the corresponding archive provides information about the deposit of documents.
And now the registering authority has nothing left but:
The last two actions are performed by the registering authority within 3 working days after the first action.
The Ministry of Justice enters into the Unified State Register information about the exclusion of sole proprietors from it. The date of exclusion from the Unified State Register will be the date of the relevant decision by the registering authority. Accordingly, the sole proprietor is considered to have completely and properly ceased operations from this date.
To check the information about the exclusion from the Unified State Register, follow the link http://egr.gov.by/egrn/index.jsp?content=Find (in the "Status" column there will be an entry "excluded from the Unified State Register", in the "Exclusion date" column the date of termination of the sole proprietor's activity will be indicated).
Have you seen the cherished entry "excluded from the Unified State Register"?
Congratulations! YOU have successfully closed the individual entrepreneurship!
