Google Cloud has been registered as a taxpayer in Uzbekistan, Spot said referring to the State Tax Committee data.
It is a set of cloud services that includes G Suite, enterprise editions of Android and Chrome OS, APIs for machine learning and Google Maps, and more. The fact that Google Cloud has been registered as a taxpayer in Uzbekistan means that payments for the service now have to take into account VAT at a rate of 15%.
Since the beginning of 2020, foreign legal entities that sell services and goods in electronic form, the place of sale of which is Uzbekistan, are recognized as taxpayers in terms of such services provided to individuals.
The State Tax Committee has set up a VAT office that allows foreign internet companies operating in Uzbekistan to register and start paying taxes.
