Draft law on self-entrepreneur status to be submitted to Prime Ministry, soon

Draft law on self-entrepreneur status will be submitted to the Prime Ministry in the next few days, Secretary of State in charge of Vocational Training and Private Initiative Sayda Ounissi said on Friday.

This draft law aims to counter informal economy by integrating over 1.9 million individuals operating in this non-structured sector that represent 38% of the gross domestic product (GDP), Ounissi indicated during a press briefing held in Tunis.

It will also help these individuals to benefit from social coverage and a specific tax system, she pointed out.

Recipients of self- entrepreneurship will not have to be registered in the Commercial Register and will be exempted from taxation during the first year, she added.

Taking the floor, Tax expert and advisor to the Prime Minister Faycel Derbel indicated that informal economy is causing huge losses to the State estimated at 2 million Tunisian dinars.

We hope this draft law to help integrate 10% of informal activities in the formal sector, he concluded.
