Tourism benefits proposed

The coalition Christian-Democratcs (KDH) has proposed a set of tax benefits designed to boost tourism.

The party said October 17 that it wants to add an amendment to income tax laws that would allow an employer to lower its tax base in exchange for providing holiday bonuses for employees.

According to the KDH's Július Brocka, the amendment would also support employment, raise investments in the tourism sector and boost state revenues through direct or indirect taxes.

Parliament is currently debating a set of amendments and revisions to tax laws. The legislative changes involve a controversial proposal to reduce corporate income tax as of January 1 next year.
