The State Tax Service of Kyrgyzstan is preparing anti-corruption amendments to tax legislation, suggesting new categories of taxpayers, the press service of the department reported.
As noted, it is planned to introduce new categories – “individual labor activity” and “individual entrepreneurial activity.” This will eliminate the risk of applying corruption measures to them.
To reduce corruption in tax audits, it is suggested to develop a detailed provision on the procedure for conducting desk and field tax audits.
Also, regulatory norms are proposed for property objects and other items related to the economic activities of a business entity engaged in illegal activities or allowing other violations of the law. This will reduce the corruption opportunities for “protection” of unregistered businessmen.
In addition, regulations to simplify the administration of a single tax, the participation of business associations in calculating the initial value of a tax contract, simplifying tax reporting, including transactions with the EEU countries, will be developed.
It is also planned to develop a new version of the Regulation on the procedure for establishing a tax post. (24.kg/Business World Magazine)
