This indicator is calculated as the ratio of the aggregate of tax payments to the total volume of sales of goods, services and works. The methodology of calculations is quite a lot in the scientific literature. They differ in the number of taxes that are taken into account and the amount of sales that is taken into account.

Display of enterprise performancetax burden, the calculation of which is based on taking into account such indicators: direct and indirect taxes, a single social tax and, of course, contributions to compulsory social insurance against accidents. Tax rates are accepted in accordance with applicable law. At the same time, the main factors that have a significant impact on the tax burden should be taken into account:
