A busi­ness­man on My­conos yesterday lodged an ap­peal to the Coun­cil of State, the coun­try’s high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive court, call­ing for a new law that re­vokes a value-added tax dis­count hitherto en­joyed by cer­tain Greek is­lands to be an­nulled as “un­con­sti­tu­tional and illegal.” The ap­peal by the un­named en­tre­pre­neur came a day af­ter the mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil of Skiathos de­cided to ap­peal to the same court against the re­voked dis­count, which obliges a hand­ful of pop­u­lar Greek is­lands to pay the stan­dard VAT rates of 6, 13 and 23 per­cent that ap­ply in the rest of the coun­try.
