Proposal to consolidate reduced rates
The volatile economic situation of the past few years has compelled multiple countries to review their fiscal policies. Countries have responded with significant fiscal measures, including modifying standard and reduced VAT rates. Switzerland, for example, is implementing some modifications to its VAT rates in January 2024. Similarly, the Czech Prime Minister is proposing to make some changes to the VAT rates in the country, through consolidating the two current reduced VAT rates in the country (15% and 10%). The single new reduced rate proposed would be either 13% or 14%. The standard VAT rate of 21% would remain unchanged. The current proposed timeframe put forward for the implementation of the new VAT rate, like Switzerland, is 1 January 2024. The Czech Republic is a compliant territory for Tungsten Network. Our e-invoicing solution accommodates all valid VAT rates in the country, and we are closely monitoring any confirmation of the new VAT rate in the country. If confirmed, we will arrange for integration of the new VAT rate as part of our solution.
