For the compensation the main criterion will be the average monthly wage which is AZN 712,00. If the salaries of some of the employees working in the entity exceed the average monthly wage their compensation will be calculated in the amount not exceeding the average monthly wage limit.
The state financial aid for April will be paid in two stages, 50% being paid in April, and the other 50% in May.
Attention! The financial aid allocated by a bank is provided only for transferring salaries. Taxpayers are not permitted to use these funds for other purposes.
