LP1 = Рmax x Ki, where

LP1 - lease payment under a lease agreement concluded with legal entities registered as Lyudinovo industrial special economic zone residents;

Рmax - maximum amount of lease for land plots, i.e. 2 per cent of their cadastre value per annum;

Ki - coefficient impacting the amount of the lease payment for Lyudinovo special economic zone residents, namely:

for residents making capital investments in Russian rubles in the amount of not less than EUR 10 (ten) million (excluding intangible assets) - 0.9;

for residents making capital investments in Russian rubles in the amount of not less than EUR 20 (twenty) million (excluding intangible assets) - 0.7;

for residents making capital investments in Russian rubles in the amount of not less than EUR 30 (thirty) million (excluding intangible assets) - 0.5.
