DGI : the interpretations relayed on the computer billing system «are entirely unfounded»

The interpretations and clarifications provided by the media on the computer billing system « have no grounds » and « reflect a misunderstanding of the new provisions of the Finance Act 2018 », stated Tuesday the Directorate-General for Taxation (DGI).

​The new provisions on the computer billing system ar​e not yet effective and will be applied only after the issuance of the regulatory decree, clarified the DGI.  The Tax Directorate also pointed out that these interpretations raised unnecessary worries in the business sector.

The regulatory decree will be elaborated according to the activities of each sector, stresses the same source. It also points out that due to the particularities and the nature of each commercial activity and its specific constraints, the computer billing system will be implemented within the framework a coordination approach with the professional associations and in a gradual way depending on the nature of each business activity.

It is noted that the DGI will held meetings soon with the professional associations and the various professional representations so as to avoid any ambiguity on this subject.
