Payments categories

This report was compiled on the basis of the amounts of taxes and payments for 2019 paid in Kazakhstan, in millions of Tenge (KZT). The types of payments (on a cash basis) are categorized as follows:

Corporate Income Tax (CIT)

Corporate income tax, except for corporate income tax withheld from the income of non-residents.

Mineral Extraction Tax (MET)

The mineral extraction tax is a compulsory payment made by subsoil users separately for each type of mineral raw material extracted in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Bonuses - commercial discovery bonus, subscription bonus

The commercial discovery bonus is paid by subsoil users under the contracts for the extraction of minerals and/or for combined exploration and production for each commercial discovery of minerals in the contract territory, including for discoveries during additional exploration.

This tax was repealed starting January 1, 2019 within the framework of changes in legislation on subsoil and subsoil use, and the tax code.

The subscription bonus is paid by the subsoil user each time a new subsoil use right is obtained and a contract is signed for exploration, production, or combined exploration and production of mineral resources, as well as when the contract area is expanded.

Payments for infrastructure improvement

Payments for infrastructure improvement are expenditures on the socio-economic development of the region and the development of infrastructure in the areas impacted by Kazatomprom’s operations, according to the terms of the contracts for subsoil use (including payments to local executive bodies)

Other

Other taxes constitute payments of historical costs, social tax, and taxes on property, land and transport and exclude value added tax and excise tax, which do not affect the amount of profit.
