Court rules out ex­cep­tion to elec­tronic pay­ments

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

An ap­peal by lawyers to freeze a min­is­te­rial de­ci­sion forc­ing them to re­ceive pay­ment elec­tron­i­cally rather than in cash was turned down by the Coun­cil of State yes­ter­day. The coun­try’s high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive court said that the dam­age lawyers claim they will suf­fer be­cause of this mea­sure is “not ir­repara­ble” given that their ap­peal to have the en­tire de­ci­sion can­celled will be tried in Oc­to­ber. The gov­ern­ment has im­posed elec­tronic pay­ments, via card, or PoS, ma­chines, on a large num­ber of pro­fes­sional groups al­ready in its bid to crack down on tax eva­sion and is ex­tend­ing the mea­sure to other sec­tors, such as doctors, as well. This mea­sure has also been ap­pealed by the Con­fed­er­a­tion of Pro­fes­sion­als, Crafts­men and Mer­chants (GSEVEE) and the Thes­sa­loniki Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, among oth­ers.
