We’re required to charge 15% VAT on top of our commission to some of our partners in Tajikistan. This is in line with legislation that was passed in 2022, which lowered the VAT from 18% to 15%. The new rate is applicable to invoices from February 2022 onwards. Click here to learn more about the new tax code. For more information on tax legislation, we advise you to contact the local tax authorities or your tax advisor.

Partners that qualify as private individuals or individual entrepreneurs are charged VAT. Those that qualify as legal entities are not charged VAT. In order to determine this, we need partners to send us their VAT information via the extranet.
