Of this amount, more than 87.1% or 28.6 billion drams was  paid in direct taxes (including income tax and profit tax), with an  increase of 36% over the year. According to the data of the State  Revenue Committee of the Republic of Armenia, this time the list of  1000 major taxpayers of Armenia included 16 banks out of 17 operating  ones, which accounted for 4.5%.

The top five taxpaying banks included: Ameriabank, ACBA Bank,  Ardshinbank, INECOBANK and Armbusinessbank, which sent to the state  treasury a total of 18.2 billion drams in H1 2022 (y-o-yl growth of  46%), of which 16.3 billion drams - direct taxes (y-o-y growth of  41%).
