Decree expected to come into effect 31 January 2022

The Minister of Finance on 20 January 2022 issued a draft decree amending the decree on goods and services subject to reduced value added tax (VAT) rates.

According to the draft decree, the reduced VAT rate on supplies, intra-community acquisition, and imports of natural gas, and on supplies, intra-community acquisition, and imports of electricity, will end 31 January 2022 (rather than 31 March 2022). 

The change is due to the proposed “Anti-Inflation Shield 2.0” package, which provides for introducing zero VAT on natural gas and 5% VAT on electricity beginning 1 February 2022.

The decree is expected to come into effect 31 January 2022.
