Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ The cabinet considered on Monday Mongolia’s joining the Convention on Transfer of Sentenced Persons of the Council of Europe, and resolved
to consult it with affiliated Standing committee.
The Convention has been ratified by governments of 47 European Union member states and by 19 non-members, including the USA, Australia and Japan, where our citizens work and study in relatively great numbers.

The Government is collaborating in exchanging the convicted and assisting in the transfer processes with several countries, where Mongolian nationals travel to on purposes of study, work and business, and have come to become subjects to criminal cases. Mongolia has signed bilateral agreements with seven countries so far, which legalized the convict-transferring procedures.

Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Such a draft was presented to the Chairman of the State Great Khural Z.Enkhbold by the Minister of Finance J.Erdenebat on May 11. The amendments concerns the taxation and reporting issues.
According to the General Tax Law, the final dates for paying and reporting of any kind of taxation are resolved to be simultaneous, while the Law on Mineral Resources says the entities should pay the quarterly royalty payments within the next quarter and to submit the monthly report by 20th of a next month.
As the two regulations contradict with each other, it puts more burden on the tax authorities, as well as on the taxpayers, said the Minister.
Therefore, the draft amendment to the Law on Mineral Resources has been developed for resolving these conflicting issues and for harmonizing the clauses of the law with the General Tax Law. In brief, the tax paying and reporting periods will be set on the same dates.
