The tourism sector incomes were nearly duplicated this summer compared to the past year. The Tax Office General Director, Veronika Vjero declared on Tuesday that the businesses turnover during August was ALL 5.4 Billion higher than past year.
“Over 2 million fiscal coupons more have been issued during August compared to the same period of the past year,” informed Vjero, adding that the sales reported by the business from January to July were 15% higher than one year ago.
According to the director the incomes increase is a direct result of the fight against fiscal evasion, especially in tourism sector where more than 6500 businesses were inspected during summer.
“The businesses operating in tourism sector were continuously monitored during summer season as part of the fight against informality. This process will continue even in the future aiming to lead to a drastic decrease of the informality phenomenon,” stated Vjero.
