Every person who lost their income will receive support – the Prime Minister

Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.

According to Giorgi Gakharia, amendments to the Tax Code will concern state subsidies on income tax, which are aimed at the retention of jobs. As regards the ordinance of the government - it will be aimed at approving social measures supporting the people who were left without an income.


“One of the most important topics of discussion for our government today will be the social and economic measures that we have already planned and presented to the public, which we will adopt by initiating amendments to the Tax Code, as well as [by issuing] an ordinance of government. Amendments to the Tax Code will concern the stimulus measures that will be adopted in terms of income tax subsidies for companies; this is directly aimed at maximizing the retention of jobs in the country. As regards the ordinance of government, it will be aimed at approving the social measures that we have already adopted, which means providing citizens who have lost their jobs with support for six months, as well as supporting those who were self-employed. We will simplify these mechanisms as much as possible and trust me - eventually, every person who lost their income will receive such support. Furthermore, you are aware that socially disadvantaged families with a score between 65,000 and 100,000 will receive support in the amount of 600 GEL during a period of six months, and this will apply to families with many children, persons with disabilities who are under the age of 16, and every person who requires support primarily from the state”, - concluded the Head of the Government.
