Why does website indicate income tax as 25%?


Fund is responsible for payment of an income tax in case it delivers free goods to individuals. For example, an individual receives a TV set which costs GEL 400. Organization has to raise GEL 500, pay income tax of 20% (i.e. GEL 100) and use remaining GEL 400 for purchase of a TV set for an individual. Income tax, GEL 100, constitutes 25% of cost of the TV set (400 X 25% = GEL 100).
