Политика налогообложения алкоголя в Кыргызстане

WHO Regional Office for Europe United Nations City, Eds.: WHO Regional Office for Europe United Nations City, (2017)

Повышение цены на алкоголь является одной из наиболее эффективных мер политики по сокращению общего потребления алкоголя в стране и, следовательно, по снижению уровня связанного с алкоголем вреда. Налогообложение - это распространенный способ контроля за ценами на алкогольные напитки, а при корректировке в соответствии с инфляцией это может быть эффективной мерой как для снижения вреда, так и для повышения поступлений в государственный бюджет. В данном отчете описывается политика налогообложения алкоголя в Кыргызстане в период с 2006 по 2016 год, а также ее влияние на поступления в бюджет и вред, связанный с алкоголем. Реализация решительных политических мер в период 2012-2014 годов позволила снизить доступность алкоголя и привела к сокращению оборота и потребления алкоголя, а также вреда, связанного с алкоголем. Хотя налоговая политика в Кыргызстане, повидимому, оказала положительное влияние, увеличение налогов должно сопровождаться действиями Правительства по контролю за производством, продажей и потреблением незаконного алкоголя.
