Large trade facilities, cinemas, theaters, exhibitions, sports facilities will be exempted from property tax for legal entities and individual entrepreneurs for a period of one year, interest on one quarter will be suspended, tax reporting for the third quarter will be postponed. Individual entrepreneurs working in the generally established mode will be exempted from taxes.

A new lending mechanism in the agricultural sector will be introduced, as well as additional tax incentives — exemption from VAT on the import of biological assets of the agricultural sector, including cattle and pedigree chickens, as well as an exemption from tax on agricultural land for nearly 7 thousand farmers.

“On behalf of the Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, the Government will take unprecedented measures to support small, medium and large enterprises. These measures are primarily aimed at maintaining current employment and creating new jobs through stimulating business activity of entrepreneurs and citizens,” said Mamin.

Banks will not charge fines and penalties for late payments arising from borrowers during the imposition of a state of emergency.

“All banks need to grant a respite to business representatives whose financial situation have worsened,” said Mamin.

The Head of Government instructed to prepare draft decisions on introducing new forms of support for entrepreneurs in state sector programs within three days.

“In implementing the Decrees of the Head of State, we take a set of decisions to determine special procedures for establishing tax rates for certain categories of taxpayers, the formation and execution of the budget, and special procedures for public procurement. In general, new measures to support entrepreneurship and domestic production will create more than 200 thousand new jobs,” Mamin said.
