Estonian Government to drop two taxes

Estonian Government to drop two taxes

Details concerning the adoption of the tax drop decision

The parties’ coalition decided to adopt the tax drop but they admit as well that the Estonian policy should remain flexible for future improvements and updates. By 1st of January 2018 the Minister of Finance has allocated time for amendments and implementation of the income tax. The government has in plan to prepare carefully each step of the policy implementation. As such they intend to evaluate best practices in package and waste management in order to develop the most appropriate future strategy for Estonia.

Effects of the tax drop for investments in Estonia

Since the excise is applied at the manufacturing stage of a product, this duty is contributing to the burden supported by local producers. By dropping it off, the government encourages production as well as investment in the manufacturing sector of Estonia
By renouncing to the excise duty, the Riigikogu Finance Committee shows its interest and careful observation of the present situation in the country. The authorities try to adapt and actualize old policies in order to encourage economic development. The tax dropping in Estonia is only one of the firsts steps done in a direction of modernization and development of the taxation system.
