Creative industry to be put under scrutiny: Taxation head
Albania’s General Taxation Directory is expected to launch a campaign with the aim to formalize the creative industry in the country, while also launching a pilot project that aims to promote tax declaration among artists.
Although earlier there has been a public call from the General Taxation Directory, GTD head Vasilika Vjero said at a meeting hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce that the economic activity of artists remains outside the tax sector.
Highlighting that there was a lively debate about checks conducted in premises where artistic activities are conducted, Vjero said that there will be an increasing attention to this industry which generates significant employment income, but operates in complete informality.
Vjero also said the General Taxation Directory has started two pilot projects within the context of sector strategy in trade and pharmaceutical services focusing not on penalizing but encouraging voluntary compliance of obligations stemming from tax laws.
