Hote­liers call for tax drop for Greece to re­main com­pet­i­tive as a des­ti­na­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

pro­fes­sion­als are call­ing for the im­me­di­ate re­turn of tourism en­ter­prises’ tax rates to com­pet­i­tive lev­els. An­dreas An­dreadis, the head of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Hel­lenic Tourism En­ter­prises (SETE), told an event on tourism in Irak­lio on Crete that ‘only that way can the tourism sec­tor fur­ther boost state rev­enues.’ He ar­gued that the in­crease of the main value-added tax rate from 23 to 24 per­cent, the abo­li­tion of VAT dis­counts for the Aegean is­lands, and the new levies and taxes im­posed on all tourism sec­tors are caus­ing con­stant harm to the com­pet­i­tive­ness of the coun­try’s tourism prod­uct.
