Amendments to corporate income tax and VAT, windfall profits tax adopted

The amendments and the rulebook on the tax return for the solidarity tax were promulgated in the official gazette on 25 September 2023. Because the deadline for filing the solidarity tax return was also 25 September 2023, the tax authority published an announcement on its website that the filing deadline was postponed to 4 October 2023.

The parliament also adopted a clarification to Article 9 paragraph 1 point 7a of the corporate income tax law confirming that losses of electricity in the electricity distribution network approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission in accordance with the applicable law are deductible for corporate income tax purposes.
