Albania Rolling Out E-Invoicing System to Ensure Tax Compliance #PYMNTS_ComAugust 6, 2019
The move would also align Albania with practices already established in the EU, which the country reportedly wants to join.
When Prime Minister Edi Rama’s government came into power, it ran a campaign asking companies to register and issue receipts.
“The main goal is to fight fiscal evasion through healthy legislation, technology and information [in] real time for every transaction, product or receipt,” said Finance Minister Anila Denaj.
The minister said that 1,600 hotels on a booking site were not registered with the proper tax authorities.
She also noted that 160 retail fuel suppliers and 453 construction companies weren’t paying taxes either.
According to an International Monetary Fund (IMF), the so-called shadow market was responsible for one-third of economic activity from 1991 to 2015, the year that the country was a NATO member and EU candidate.
The new plan compels businesses to report all online transactions beginning on January 1.
Tax Department General Manager Delina Ibrahimaj expects the plan to be good for the country, with an approximate 15 percent increase in the collection of value-added tax and a more efficient tax collection process.
Corporate tax in the country is set at a flat rate of 15 percent.
If a business has less than eight million in turnover, it is exempt from that tax.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
