Hi, Anyone currently working in Kazakhstan? I'm at decision point to take a job; unfortunately the salary is quoted gross. Need to know what income tax rates expats expect to pay in 2012? I know that income tax used to be 10% residents/ 15% non-residents/ 11% employers' social contributions - but understand that all this was supposed to change for 2012. I heard that Kazakhstan might emulate the Russian system: 30% premium rate for foreigners not on a work permit (ie during 6+ months processing period), banded income tax rates, banded personal and corporate social contribution rates. If this is true, then my gross salary might be deducted anywhere between 10 and 50%..... p.s. parent company is highly ethical, and I will be the local MD - so no offshoring of pay or bonuses, etc. Not that I expect any Arrsers would be doing that, having done their Values and Standards training, of course... LOL Thanks for any real world data!
