Estonian experts are giving a helping hand to Georgian authorities to implement the Estonian Taxation Model in Georgia.

Today Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili hosted Estonian Ambassador to Georgia Priit Turk.

Kvirikashvili thanked Turk for the Estonian experts’ efforts to help Georgia implement its income tax reform, based on the Estonian model. Under the Estonian Taxation Model all businesses, except profit-sharing businesses, should be exempted from income tax.

As well as this the two officials talked about Georgia’s governance reform. The reform aimed to increase transparency and involve society in important decision-making processes.

As part of this reform a special unit called Front Office will be created at the Administration of the Government of Georgia. The Office will monitor transparency and the deadlines of the decision-making processes, announced the Georgian PM’s press office on January 18, 2016.
