The convenient and favorable geographical position of Georgia makes it attractive from the point of view of establishing various types of industries, infrastructure facilities, research and business on its territory.

Attractive conditions are also created by internal and external activities: reducing the level of bureaucracy and corruption, calm in the internal political life of the country, participation in international projects, opening large free zones.

The ability to enjoy special benefits when registering a business, doing business, minimal taxation and the lack of tight financial control turns free zones into small offshore territories.

The opening of free economic zones attracts investments in Georgia, gives great opportunities to partner countries for the development of foreign business and promotes the integration of Georgia into the world community. Therefore, the topic of free zones for business development deserves special attention.

Here is a comparative analysis of open economic areas in some parameters.

GEORGIAN OPEN ECONOMIC ZONES PROVIDE TAX FREEDOM

The primary advantage of the Georgian free economic space is tax breaks. Their essence is a complete exemption from any payment for business activities, except for the tax on the salaries of the workers in the zone.

A company producing products for imports in the free industrial zone (PPE) pays a single tax – 4% – tax on the salaries of individuals. When bringing goods to the domestic market of Georgia, the manufacturer is obliged to contribute 4% of the cost of production.
