(Uzbekistan Tax News Reporter - 18 October 1996)

Enterprises carrying on trading activity are liable to tax on gross income. However, if such trading enterprises are also involved in manufacturing activity and this mixed activity is determined as the main one in their special registration cards, these enterprises should account separately for such types of activity. Taxes are paid by such enterprises in accordance with these types of activity, thus tax on gross income should be paid on trading activity and profits tax should be paid on manufacturing activity.
