  • stricter taxation of raffle and gambling winnings.

Value added tax:

  • Reduction in the number of VAT rates to a basic 21% and a reduced 12% (e.g. medicines, food, magazines);
  • shifting selected goods and services from the reduced to the standard VAT rate (e.g. hairdressing services, draught beer, shoe, leather goods and bicycle repairs, cleaning services, newspapers, etc.).

Other taxes:

  • Increase in property tax and introduction of a regular indexation component to respond to inflation;
