Taxes in Greece: A double block on “bloating” spending by freelancers and businesses

Taxes in Greece: A double block on “bloating” spending by freelancers and businesses

The role of minimum imputed income and myDATA

The Ministry of Finance and the Independent Public Revenue Authority-AADE put a double “block” on the spending tricks used by professionals and entrepreneurs to zero out turnovers of thousands of euros appearing at the Tax Office with zero net profits to avoid paying income tax.

The new self-employed taxation system which will be applied from this year’s incomes which will be taxed in 2024 and myDATA blocks “cooking the books” and the phenomena of artificial inflation of expenses.

With the new system, professionals, even if they show zero profits, will now be taxed with the minimum presumptive income, while with the universal application of myDATA in 2024, the Tax Office will recognize as expense invoices only those that have been transmitted electronically to the myDATA platform.

The audit carried out by AADE on the tax declarations of 3.8 million taxpayers who showed incomes of up to 10,000 euros to the Tax Office reveals extreme cases of tax evasion. Entrepreneurs and professionals, while having turnovers of thousands of euros after “cooking” expenses, reset the counter of net profits to zero, as a result of which they do not pay a single euro of income tax, but only the pretense fee.

The passage of artificial inflation of expenses will be closed with the new type of objective criteria and those who declare incomes above the presumptive income will earn a 50% reduction in the presumption fee while those who show incomes below the minimum presumption will have a 25% reduction in the presumption fee.
