By Damir Azizov – Trend:
Uzbekistan introduced an excise tax of 70 percent on imports of small trucks with an engine capacity of up to 2,500 cubic centimetres and a total weight of no more than five tons.
The excise tax comes into effect starting from 2016.
Prior to the introduction of the excise duty on the small trucks’ imports, a customs duty of 30 percent and a value added tax of 20 percent of the vehicles’ customs value was in effect in Uzbekistan.
During the past three years, about 16,000 mini-trucks have been imported to the country, according to Uzbekistan’s State Customs Committee.
Some 95 percent of them have been imported from China and South Korea.
