“The tax reform process in Tunisia will end in 2019,” said Sihem Nemssia Boughdiri, Director General of Studies and Tax Legislation at the Ministry of Finance
Speaking on the sidelines of a training course for journalists specialized in the economy, organized by the Ministry of Finance from March 13 to 15, 2017, the official said the department has opted for “a progressive approach to tax reforms, so that they would be better understood and not to increase the burden of businesses.”
Boughdiri also said the Ministry of Finance intends to publish a unified tax code this year.
This code, which will bring together all tax legislation, will facilitate the work of specialists and investors alike, said the official.
She added that the drafting of the code will soon be finalized and later submitted to the government and the parliament for adoption.
