In Kyrgyzstan, the procedure for obtaining a document to confirm the tax status (residence) of the Kyrgyz Republic has been simplified.
A new simplified procedure for obtaining the document was introduced in order to create favorable conditions for taxpayers and it is aimed at minimizing the contacts of business entities with employees of tax authorities.
Thus, the government of the Kyrgyz Republic approved the Regulation on the procedure of implementation of agreements on avoidance of double taxation and prevention of tax evasion on income and capital taxes entered into by and between the Kyrgyz Republic and foreign states.
According to this Regulation, in order to confirm residency, a taxpayer needs only to file a statement in the prescribed form if there is tax registration - to the central office of the State Tax Service, in the absence of tax registration – to the Ministry of Economy of the Kyrgyz Republic.
Previously, the taxpayer had to apply to the central office of the State Tax Service to confirm his residency after obtaining the relevant certificate of tax registration with the territorial tax authority.
