        Τhe Greek Central Government in Athens passed amendments to the VAT tax code (VAT) that came into force on May 20, 2019 under laws Gazetted as 4611/2019, 4607/2019 and 4591/2019.

        After so many complaints, the 24% VAT on a range of services related to food consumption has been reduced to 13% from May 20, 2019.

        The areas covered in general, are:

        1. Restaurants, grills, tavernas, coffee shops, cafeterias, patisseries plus takeaway outlets and other related businesses except entertainment centres and some other outlets.
