Greece May Impose Luxury Tax on “Expensive Holidays”

Luxury-hotelThe Greek Government may impose a new tax on holidaymakers that choose to spend their vacation on very expensive island destinations and reside in luxurious hotels.

Greek Mega Channel said on Saturday that the proposal for the special “luxury tax” may be included in negotiations with the country’s lenders in a bid to reduce pressures to axe the special tax status of the Greek islands.

The VAT on dozens of Aegean islands — except Crete — is currently reduced by 30 percent against the current rate that applies for the rest of Greece. This regime was imposed to offset the high cost of transporting goods and to boost tourism development.
