FYR Macedonia: Government adopts law on public disclosure of tax debtors

Elena Kostovska
The FYR Macedonian government has approved the Law on Public Disclosure of Tax Debtors, thus permitting its entry into Parliamentary discussion. According to the law, the Public Revenue Office as well as the Customs Office will publish lists of debtors on their websites.

The criteria for being included on such list is tax/customs debt older than 90 days or in excess of €2,000 ($2,700) for physical persons; €5,000 for legal entities. The debt will concern unpaid taxes (corporate income tax, personal income tax, VAT), customs duties, excise taxes as well as social security contributions.

The government is confident that the law will improve the tax discipline as well as give insight into which persons/companies practice tax avoidance. The debtors whose names will be published will be notified a few days in advance, as a last notice before public identity disclosure.
