Kalikova & Associates presents new business guide: Doing Business in Kyrgyz Republic: Legal Aspects.
This information guide covers legal aspects of doing business in Kyrgyzstan. Its creation was inspired by customers who, having entered the market of this country, frequently faced issues related to starting and running their business in Kyrgyzstan, like for instance, investor protection, tax and licensing requirements, employment issues, and many other regulation areas. This document represents an attempt to answer many of these questions, but, more importantly, it is an attempt to create a useful guide for those who are interested in doing business in Kyrgyzstan.
At the outset of work authors analyzed similar efforts made in other countries. They were quite impressed by the respective publications of Baker & McKenzie international law firm and KPMG international audit firm, and decided to build upon their experience.
This guide was prepared by entire team of lawyers practicing in corporate law, banking and finance law, mineral resource exploration and mining law, energy, real estate and construction law, telecommunications, tax and customs law, certification and employment law and in many other areas of law. This publication is evidence of continuous search for new possibilities of professional growth.
Authors express their special gratitude and appreciation to reviewers, including the Ministry of Economic Development and Commerce of the Kyrgyz Republic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic, the Ministry of Justice of the Kyrgyz Republic, and the International Business Council public association, for their willingness to provide comments on the manuscript prior to its publication. Authors have tried to incorporate all comments received, and are positive that they have significantly enhanced the quality of this document. However, as there is always room for perfection, they would appreciate any further recommendations on improving the content of the materials presented. They are planning to update this guide on an annual basis, and will do their best to incorporate all comments provided. To make the publication broadly accessible, they have placed it on our website at www.k-a.kg.
Kalikova & Associates thank readers and want to emphasize that collective effort has originated not only from their eagerness for professional growth, but also from their desire to make this country more open to businesses. Company sincerely wish Kyrgyzstan to prosper, and hope that this publication will become a small yet earnest contribution of company's professional team towards a better future for Kyrgyzstan.
