tourism has suf­fered a ma­jor blow from the hike in value-added tax to 23 per­cent this sum­mer, ac­cord­ing to the Greek Pro­fes­sional Yacht Own­ers Bare­boat As­so­ci­a­tion (SITESAP). The as­so­ci­a­tion is ask­ing the gov­ern­ment to change the rate back to 13 per­cent for now and post­pone the in­crease un­til Oc­to­ber, along the lines of the VAT raise for ho­tel ac­com­mo­da­tion. The tax hike has come at a time when ves­sel book­ings have dropped due to the gen­eral fi­nan­cial cri­sis in the coun­try, SITESAP says.
