Uzbekistan: The Higher Economic Court of Uzbekistan has upheld a penalty tax on excess profit of Ahangarancement JSC (a subsidiary of Russian Eurocement Group JSC) from 2009 to 2014 and penalties for its late payment.

Ahagarancement stated that it would appeal the decision because it calculated the excess profit tax in accordance with the laws of the country. It added that the calculation had been confirmed as correct by the ministry of finance and the expert council at the State Tax Committee.

"The decision significantly changes the legal practice on issues of the formation of profits of cement companies, significantly encumbers the plant with an additional tax burden, leads to a reduction of investment opportunities of the enterprise and jeopardises the implementation of the project of modernisation of the enterprise," said the company in a press release.

The tax authorities of Uzbekistan have not commented on the situation.
