VAT changes in Greece

27 February 2015

The new government has announced a range of VAT reform measures:

  • A proposed new VAT rate on luxury goods (this includes high-value cars, boats, aircraft, helicopters, swimming pools, watches and perfumes). This may not be permitted by the European Union as Member States are normally only permitted a standard and two reduced VAT rates under the EU VAT Directive.
  • A reclassification of many basic foodstuffs from the reduced VAT rate of 13% to the second reduced rate of 6%.
