In particular, the excess profits tax will be charged during sale of copper cathode at a price varying between over $4.350 per ton and "cut prices", earlier reaching more than $4.200.

The settlement price is set for companies selling polyethylene granules to determine the tax base for excess profit at $ 1.325 million soums per ton compared to 1.2 million soums in 2012.

The settlement prices for natural gas and clinker remained unchanged, equaling $160 per one thousand cubic meters and 80,000 soums per ton.

The tax rate on excess profits remained at the level of 50 percent of the taxed base.

According to the approved state budget for 2013, Uzbekistan plans to raise 294.5 billion soums through excess profits tax compared to 250 billion soums in 2012.
