Legal entities and entrepreneurs will not have to pay VAT when buying gold bars. The proposal was made today by MP Dastan Bekeshev.
He proposes to amend the Tax Code. Previously, individuals and commercial banks were exempt from payment of VAT when buying refined bars. Possible loss in taxes is estimated at 6 million soms.
"This is a theoretical loss. We calculated it on the basis of the sale of ingots in 2015. I believe that the idea of the National Bank on the popularization of bullions as an investment mean should be supported," Dastan Bekeshev said.
