“From June 1, 2020, increase by an additional 10 percent the number of recipients of benefits for families with children under the age of 14 years, for childcare until he/she reaches the age of two years and financial assistance,” the document says.

The Ministry of Finance was instructed to allocate subsidies from the Anti-Crisis Fund to the budget of Karakalpakstan, local budgets of the regions and the city of Tashkent, as well as to the off-budgetary Pension Fund (if necessary) in connection with shortfalls in tax benefits and an increase in the number of recipients of social benefits.

Earlier it was reported that in Uzbekistan a number of business entities were exempted from property tax. The social tax rate for micro-firms and small enterprises was reduced to 1%.
