“The Tax Ministry has introduced the online registration of legal entities since 2012,” Valiyev added. “Moreover, a hotline was created and launched in 2013 to assist in all issues related to the tax sphere. A platform was created to simplify the tax system and introduce a cash report in 2016. Then the share of turnover used in the payment of value added tax was expanded in 2019.”

“The changes in the current year, which entered into force in the tax system, will allow citizens to return 30 percent of the amount paid for the first acquired real estate, will oblige to register the goods purchased from people not registered by the tax authorities, goods with excise stamps,” the deputy minister of taxes added. “There are also other changes which can be reviewed in the future."
