Bill related to raising value added tax rate passed second reading
At the extraordinary session which began at 3.00 p.m., the Riigikogu discussed the Bill on Implementation of the Act on Amendments to Acts relating to the Second Supplementary State Budget of the Year 2009 Act (556 SE), initiated by the Estonian Reform Party Faction, the Pro Patria and Res Publica Union Faction and the Estonian Green Party Faction. At the second reading, the motions to amend were reviewed which specified the implementing provisions and the due dates for the entry into force thereof, with a view to alleviating the impact experienced by undertakings as a result of raising the value added tax rate at a too short notice.
The sitting ended at 3.50 p.m.
A second extraordinary session for the third reading of the Bill will take place an hour after the end of the specified session.
