In January – November 2014, budget revenues from profit tax (690.1 mln. GEL) reached 75.7% (gap 221.8. mln. GEL) of annually planned amount (912 mln. GEL).

 

The gap is too large and even with accumulation of 15% of total Profit Tax Revenues in December, budget revenues from profit tax will amount to 120 mln. GEL. Accordingly, only 89% of Profit Tax Revenues will be executed.

In January – November 2014, Revenues from import tax (86.9 mln. GEL) reached 86.9% (gap 13.1 mln. GEL) of the annually planned amount (100 mln. GEL).

 

Given that, in December 2013, import increased by 4.3%, compared to November 2013. In addition, in December 2014, GEL drastically depreciated against USD (6.7%), making imports more expensive. As a result, in December 2014, import is expected to increase by only 1.5% and generate 5 mln. GEL revenue from import tax. Hence, revenue from import tax will be executed by 92% of annually planned amount.
