ISSUE  #17 / 23.01.2014

 

The completion rate of state budget in 2013 is 90.9%.Correspondingly, there is the lack of 632.3 mln. GEL in state budget1.

During the three quarter of 2013, the indicator of Tax burden (tax revenues/GDP) (25.3%) has not changed much in comparison with the corresponding indicator for 2012 (25.7%).

In November 22013, tax revenues increased in comparison with the November 2012 (3.6%).  Revenues from Income, Import and Property taxes increased (19.4%; 17.6%; 11.4%) and the revenues from VAT, Profit and Excise taxes (-2.2%; -20.6%; -0.3%) declined.

In the period of January-November 2013, the total revenue from VAT and Income taxes is 4242.3 mln. GEL.  Taking into account GDP growth (2.6%) , which is based on  the turnover of VAT payer enterprises) and inflation rates (-0.7%) in the men-tioned period, the total revenue from VAT and Income taxes should have been  4390.9 mln. GEL. The volume of import decreased (-1.53%), which should cause decrease of VAT revenue approximately by 20 mln GEL. This indicates lack of 128.6 mln.GEL (4390.9-4242.3-20)=128.6mln.GEL).

In November 2013, the volume of  VAT revenue  de-creased in comparison with the indicator of  November 2012 (-2.1%).

It is noteworthy, that in the period of January-Novem-ber 2013 the VAT decreased (-7.6%), while GDP grew (2.6%) 1 . This can be explained by the  growth of those sec-tors of GDP,  the production of which are not  fully taxed by VAT (e.i agriculture,financial activity,education), also by the growth  of export (it is exempt from VAT);  by decrease of import (it is not included in GDP but is the base of VAT or may be tax collection was not properly administered.

 

1. Forecast of GDP growth by GEOSTAT, based on the VAT payer enterprises turnover, fiscal and monetary indicators.

 

 

 It is considerable, that the turnover of the VAT payer enter-prises increased  (5.7%) in October 2013, the volume of im-port  increased (22.1%) in November  2013, but the revenue from VAT decreased in November 2013 (-2.1%).

VAT revenue in November 2013 is determined based on  the turnover of the VAT payer enterprises in October 2013, as they pay VAT by the 15th day of the next month. And also based on the volume of import, which is taxed by VAT. As both of these indicators increased, it’s interesting why corresponding indicator of VAT decreased.
