Health care and pharm industries
As the most densely populated country in Central Asia, Uzbekistan is home to more than 32 million people, and as such medicine and the related pharmaceutical industry is a government development and investment priority. In this document, we provide a brief overview of tax and customs concessions available to companies operating in the medical and pharmaceutical industry in Uzbekistan. As many companies, before investing in the country, prefer to open representative offices for research and monitoring purposes. We highlight the main issues associated with managing those in this brochure. There is also touch on the other legal forms available such as limited liability companies, joint stock companies or permanent establishments. More detailed information on the various business forms can be found on our website. As the taxation system in Uzbekistan is subject to frequent changes, we recommend using this overview for general purposes only. We will be glad to discuss with you any tax-related issues you may have in more detail.
