Corporate - Group taxation

Last reviewed - 31 October 2019

There is no provision for consolidation of income or losses by related companies for tax purposes in Uzbekistan. A foreign legal entity that has several PEs in Uzbekistan may not consolidate those for tax purposes.

Transfer pricing

The transfer pricing concept in the Uzbek Tax Code is limited to a couple of paragraphs stating that tax authorities may adjust prices used by interrelated parties if these prices differ from the prices that would have been used in transactions with independent parties. There is no further guidance for application of this rule, which gives rise to different interpretation by tax authorities and taxpayers.

It is expected that full-fledged transfer pricing rules will be introduced as of 1 January 2020.

Thin capitalisation

Effective legislation does not provide for thin capitalisation rules, except for debt-to-equity ratios set up by the Central Bank of Uzbekistan (CBU) for commercial banks.

Controlled foreign companies (CFCs)

Uzbek tax legislation currently does not provide for any CFC rules or regulations. However, it is expected that CFC regulations will be introduced in 2020.
