Subject. This article discusses the importance of entrepreneurship in increasing tax revenues, creating jobs, and saturating the market with goods.
Objectives. The article aims to assess the impact of small and medium-sized businesses on the overall development of the Republic of Tuva's economy and analyze government measures to support business.

On the basis of the analysis, the article shows the changes in the number of small and medium-sized businesses and the self-employed in the Republic of Tuva for 2019–2024, and breaks down them by municipality, urban district, and type of activity in 2023.
