Finance Law: measures increasing tax pressure need to be avoided (OECT)

(TAP)- Measures likely to increase tax pressure and inflation, weaken the purchasing power of citizens and impact the business environment need not to be included in the 2023 Finance Law, the Board of the Chartered Accountants of Tunisia (French: OECT) said on Monday.


Measures introducing a comprehensive tax reform are called for as part of a clear economic strategy which has the support of the majority of economic and social actors.


A series of proposals was put forward by the board to this end. This mainly includes fighting fraud and tax evasion, increasing tax control, upgrading the administration and encouraging investment and export.
