    Yes, Nadezhda, indeed, this is one of the main questions for an Investor!
    I will try to answer briefly, touching upon the main points. There is no property tax in Georgia, and there is no value added tax (after 2 years).

    Every year, prices for land and real estate are growing in value, in some areas the increase was 30%! Also, Georgia has a visa-free regime with 94 countries, and for Russian citizens there is a 1-year restriction on stay, then you just need to cross the border.

    In this country, there are no restrictions on the hiring of foreign citizens, it is very convenient for both business and personnel.
