Introduction of the general declaration in Kazakhstan is at “limbo” position. The thing is that this system has the range of the outstanding issues. According to Zhannat Yertlessova, the Chairman of the Management Counsel of Kazakhstan Taxpayers Association (KTA), the state authorities of RoK are not yet ready for the general declaration. Therefore, she pointed out that Nursultan Nazarbayev just timely postponed the introduction of general declaration, kn.kz informs.
Zhannat Yertlessova pointed out some key points. For instance, she believes that the country does not have any clarity as to the reforming of the special tax regimes:
– Kazakhstan ranks the first in the world in terms of self-employed people of total number of employees in our country, which represents 90% of people working under the special tax regimes. How are they going to submit their declarations? What is the tax accounting? How to review the information provided? - the Chairman of the Taxpayers Association enumerates. Whether the postal organizations are ready to accept the paper documents in such large volume – also the question!
Another point: taxation of the foreign income of the Kazakhstani residents.
– It is totally unclear for me: if the citizen of our country has the Microsoft shares and they are listed aboard – how should it be stated it in the declaration, how should it be reviewed by the Tax? – Zhannat Yertlessova wonders.
She believes that introduction of the general declaration should be brought in line with the long-term objectives of the tax policy. Additionally, the individuals review system, risk management system, declaration data review and reconciliation should be introduced. Zhannat Yertlessova also proposed to bring in line the state census of population with the general declaration so that to know the exact number of the residents and non-residents in the country.
