The cash withdrawal restrictions are effective from June 1, 2020, until December 31, 2020, and are applicable to the following business entities:

 Business entity Cash withdrawal limit from bank accounts in one calendar month
Small enterprise KZT 20 million
Medium-sized enterprise KZT 120 million 
a large enterprise  KZT 150 million 

It is allowed to exceed the set limits only if: (i) the client (i.e. a legal entity of one of the above-mentioned types of business entities) provides a rationale for withdrawing cash to the bank where the cash withdrawal is expected, and (ii) the bank further obtains approval from the State Revenue Committee of the Ministry of Finance. The committee shall consider a request for cash withdrawal within three business days.
