The Parliament passed last week the fourteen percent flat rate VAT which comes to replace the still-in-force Consumer Tax rate of 10%.

The e-infrastructure to support all activities related to the payment and settlement of VAT, a computerised system with billing management software, will enable the communication between AGT and Large Taxpayers, the target audience of the first phase of the implementation of the aforementioned tax.

The implementation  of VAT aims to combat tax evasion and fraud and the gradual framing of the informal economy.

The tax will be initially applied to large taxpayers, but those with the organised accounts and appropriate IT conditions can also join.
