Budget bill 2018: introduction of 3-dinar tax on each overnight stay.

(TAP) - The budget bill 2018 provides for the introduction of 3-dinar tax on each overnight stay in hotels for the benefit of the state budget.

The bill also proposes increasing the fixed costs of registration from 20 to 25 dinars on each contract and on each page, as the case may be.

In addition the draft law also provides for an increase in the value of the revenue stamp applied to telephone services (from 0.100 d to 0.140d) and to apply it to Internet services and the revision of the value of the revenue stamp imposed on certain contracts and administrative documents.

The bill also envisages giving craftsmen the possibility of accessing new loans and canceling loans not exceeding 2000 dinars contracted by these craftsmen from the Tunisian National Handicrafts at the end of 2008 in order to reintegrate them into the economic circuit.

The draft finance law 2018 also provides for incentives for private companies located in regional development zones.

Among these measures, the State proposes to cover the employers' contribution to social security for the recruitment of university graduates and higher technicians for three years (from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2020).

The bill also proposes suspending the consumption tax on imports of all-terrain vehicles for the benefit of travel agencies and to subject certain imported products to the tax for the protection of the environment, while exempting products, since their inputs have already been taxed.
