Besimi met the Chambers: Decisions about better and more efficient tax system to be adopted through an inclusive process

- We need a tax system that will provide quicker, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth. The Minister of Finance, Fatmir Besimi, held several meetings with the presidents of the chambers of commerce discussing the tax reform and the action plan this year regarding the 2021-2025 Tax System Reform Strategy. The meetings included the presidents of the chambers of commerce: Branko Azeski of the Economic Chamber of Macedonia, Nebi Hoxha of the Economic Chamber of North-West Macedonia, Stefan Peter of the Foreign Investors Council, Viktor Mizo of the Association of Companies with Technologically Advanced Production, Ajdovan Ademoski of MATTO, Patrick Martens of the Delegation of the German Economy, Maja Filipcheva of the American Chamber of Commerce, Aneta Antova Pesheva of MASIT, Nina Angelovska of the E-commerce Association, and Dragan Mitkovski, Vice President of the Macedonian Chambers of Commerce.

Minster Besimi highlighted the importance of the partnership between the Government and the private sector and expounded that apart from the undertaken measures, the consistency and the inclusion of the stakeholders in the decision-making process are also important.

“The tax system reforms aim to establish modern, transparent, and efficient tax system based on clear rules and principles and on contemporary digital technologies and tax innovations, aiming for faster, inclusive and sustainable economic growth,” pointed out Besimi, emphasizing that the tax calendar will be published on the Ministry’s website on Monday, which implies meeting one of the main demands of the Chambers.

A discussion took place about the Tax System Reform Strategy, which aims for greater tax fairness, greater efficiency and effectiveness of the tax system in the income collection, reduction of the informal economy, greater tax transparency, better service quality and introduction of green tax.
