Buying and Selling a Business in Azerbaijan
In 2020, the European entrepreneurial organization EuСham placed Azerbaijan in the 41st place in the ranking of the countries with the most favourable business environment. When compiling the rating, the analysis of the World Bank and the corruption perception index were considered and EU highly appreciated the work on implementation of electronic declarations and preliminary declaration service.
Reforms carried out by the tax service create the basis for achieving high results in international ratings. In the World Bank’s Doing Business 2019 Report, which presents its own rating of ease of doing business in 190 countries of the world, the Republic of Azerbaijan has improved its position and takes the 25th place.
Two indicators of Doing Business, Starting a Business and Paying Taxes, are directly related to taxation issues. Azerbaijan has significantly improved its position in both indicators; over the past year, Azerbaijan has grown from the 18th to the 9th place in the Start Business indicator, and from the 35th to the 28th place in the Tax Payments indicator.
