Does anyone know if the ‘one person tests positive, the whole plane isolates’ rule is being implemented or just for show? I feel like they need to clarify this as it will stop a lot of people flying, myself included.

General Discussion / Re: Even Fewer Visits to Tax Office
« Last post by Denis O on Today at 11:18:06 AM »
Anything that means people can steer clear of that God forsaken place has to be good news. I've managed to avoid visits by sending accountants and lawyers staff members, over the years but I did have the misfortune to go in there a couple of weeks ago; signatures required. The usual Greek chaos when forced to queue, 2 metres WTFIT. Someone taking temperatures before you can get in the offices. Probably would have been better employed, taking temperatures outside the building, but mine was not to reason why. 1 guy trying to keep some sort of order but he was certainly fighting a losing battle.

What a fun place.

Even fewer visits to tax office
PROKOPIS HATZINIKOLAOU

Taxpayers will be able to carry out remotely all their business with state agencies regarding property transfers, original tax declarations or amendments for past years such as the Large Property Tax (FMAP) or the Single Property Levy (ETAK), as well as various property certificates.

All declarations related to property tax cases such as transactions, inheritances and parental concessions, as well as a series of applications and documents, will be submitted to the tax offices by email, courier or registered post, in an effort to reduce taxpayers’ visits to tax offices ahead of the full digitization of all tax procedures related to capital taxation.

The decision by the director of the Independent Authority for Public Revenue, Giorgos Pitsilis, determines that taxpayers will not have to go to their local tax office for capital taxation matters for which there is no online procedure available yet. All declarations, applications and documents will have to be forwarded by post or courier, or be scanned and sent electronically to the director of the competent agency at the IAPR or the protocol agency.

The certification of the applicants’ identity can be done either via a formal statement issued via the dilosi.services.gov.gr website of the Single Digital Public Administration Portal www.gov.gr, through which they can declare they are the signatories of the application/statement, or through the certification that their signature is genuine at a Citizens Service Center (KEP) or another state authority.

Signatures can also be confirmed as genuine in cases of declarations of donation tax, parental concession and property transaction) by the notary who attaches the related document provided that the signatory has signed the document in the presence of the notary.

In the case of the electronic forwarding of declarations, the formal statement is also sent electronically with the declaration submitted. The certification of taxpayers’ signature or the submission of the formal statement for proof of identity is also required in cases where declarations are submitted directly to the protocol agency of the tax office, regardless of whether a taxpayer is there in person or not.

Changes to registration tax for cars

The method used to calculate cars’ registration tax is changing radically, according to a draft law the Finance Ministry has put up for public consultation.

According to the ministry, the new rules form part of the broader government policy for the renewal of the country’s existing vehicle fleet and the promotion of new-technology cars with lower emissions.

The new policy introduces a novel system of progressive taxation for passenger vehicles, while the additional charges are dependent on the age of each vehicle according to Euro anti-pollution technology.

Among other things, the bill will make hybrid models more attractive. They will enjoy a tax discount up to 75% provided their emissions do not surpass 50 grams of carbon dioxide.

For example, the current method provides for a car worth 20,000 euros before tax to pay registration tax of €3,200. With the new, progressive system, the registration tax would have a 4% rate for the first €14,000 of the car’s value – i.e. €560 – a 26% rate for the next €3,000 – i.e. €780 – and 53% for the other €3,000 – i.e. €1,590 – for a sum of €2,930.
