Il-GRTU matul dawn l-ahhar ghaxart ijiem tkellmet ma mijiet ta’ sidien ta’ negozji mis-setturi kollha rapprezentati mill-GRTU biex jinhadem Rapport dwar l-Istat tan-Negozji Maltin kif imkejjel mis-sidien tan-negozji nfushom. Is-sidien qed jghidu wkoll x’qed jistennew mis-sena 2006
The Guideline issued by NECC regarding the submission of Financial Statements does not take into account the modus operandi of small businesses.
