  • [01] Alexiadis to ANA-MPA: 'Not one euro lost to tax evasion'

    ANA-MPA -- The time for talking and describing problems was over, it was now time to solve them, newly appointed Alternate Finance Minister for Revenues Tryfon Alexiadis stressed in an interview with the ANA-MPA on Monday, underlining that the ministry's focus will focus squarely on fighting tax evasion. "It is impossible for this government, which is being forced to adopt tough taxation measures that are foreign to its ideological framework and outside its programme, to allow even one euro to be lost to tax evasion," Alexiadis said. The government would tackle both issues of corruption and tax evasion issues, he pledged. Asked to list his priorities at the ministry, the minister made clear that there would no further extension of the deadline for submitting tax statements, which was already generous. He also announced sweeping market inspections that would be announced on a day-to-day basis, using all available staff, "to check everything". He also promised changes in the organisation of tax office services that he said would bring about truly impressive, "eye-watering" results. The full interview in Greece is available on the ANA-MPA website.

    Earlier on Monday, during a meeting of a special commission against corruption chaired by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, there was emphasis on speeding up procedures for combatting tax evasion. Among others, it was decided that a draft bill for the voluntary disclosure of deposits in Greece and abroad will soon be tabled in Parliament.
