The information was given last Wednesday by a director of the AGT, Hermenegildo Gaspar, during the Second Methodological Meeting with Major Taxpayers, held under the motto “The role of Taxation in investment”.  

Hermenegildo Gaspar admitted that the action of Major Taxpayers is extremely important for the national economy, since it contributes greatly to the increase of production in different sectors, the tax revenue, jobs creation, as well as the attraction of investments and foreign exchanges for the country.

In terms of incentives, he disclosed that Company Tax has been decreased from 35% to 30%, so as to increase competitiveness.

He appealed to the representatives of the various companies attending the meeting to fulfil their fiscal duties, since that is one of the main tools used by the State to foster development.
