Reduction in the maximum personal income tax rate from 22 to 12 percent, a single social payment rate from 25 to 15 percent, and the abolition of the 8 percent insurance premium will lead to an increase in population’s income by 6.5 percent.

As a result of reducing property tax rates of legal entities from 5 to 2 percent, income tax from 14 to 12 percent, a single tax payment for small business from 5 to 4 percent, 2 trillion UZS of additional funds will remain at the disposal of entrepreneurs.
