“The tax debts are divided into two parts. First - writing off the interests calculated due to the unpaid taxes. Second – writing off the financial sanctions. Firstly, I’s like note that it’s offered to write off calculated interests as of January 1, 2017. Depending on the structure of financial sanctions, the financial sanctions provided in the article #58.7 of the Tax Code, which are considered for violation of rules on cash operations, are planned to be written off regardless amount. At the same time, the financial sanctions provided in the article #58 and other articles of the Tax Code are planned to be written off in a certain succession”.

Of this, AZN 125.5 million belongs to state sector, AZN 260.9 million to non-state sector. At the same time, AZN 3 million of financial sanctions of 6,304 taxpayers on violation of rules on cash operations is planned to be written off as of January 1, 2017. Regarding writing off other financial sanctions, by writing off financial sanctions which are adequate to their payments in January, February and March, AZN 234 million of 13,780 taxpayers will be written off. So, this draft law will write off AZN 624 million of 44,704 taxpayers. We think this will serve increase of economic activity of the taxpayers. Moreover, by writing off the interest amounts, AZN 288.3 million will be written off in Baku, AZN 98 million in the regions. Regarding financial sanctions, AZN 138.5 million will be written off in Baku, AZN 98.5 million in the regions”.
