UZBEKISTAN TO ABOLISH EXCISE TAX ON IMPORTED MEAT AND FLOUR

In order to create favorable conditions for sustainable development of domestic production of high quality finished products, promote exports, meet the consumer demand of the population of the Republic, to prevent unjustified price rises in the domestic consumer market, and to provide producers of the Republic with raw materials, not produced in the country or produced in insufficient quantities, the head of state adopted a decision "On measures for further streamlining of foreign economic activity of the Republic of Uzbekistan".

Pursuant to a decree dated 1 September 2017, a zero rate of customs duties was introduced on butter, soybean and sunflower oil seed (potatoes, wheat, meslin, rye, barley, oats, corn, grain sorghum, buckwheat, millet, soybean, flax, sunflower, etc.), rye flour, groats and flour from durum wheat, cane sugar, cacao beans, the raw materials used in pharmaceuticals, some products for animal feeding.

Starting from 1 September of the current year, following goods are not subject to excise: meat and edible meat offal, poultry fat, pork fat, wheat flour and other products used for animal feed.

Meantime, this decision also provides for cutting the current rates of customs duties on certain types of goods, including:

— customs duty on meat of bovine animals, pork, lard, poultry fat and other edible meat offal, coffee, wheat flour, cane sugar;

— excise duty on sunflower oil, cane sugar and coffee.

The cut of customs duties on raw materials for the production of food and consumer goods is set to be a strong incentive for domestic producers, thereby lowering production costs and increasing its competitiveness.
