Tax Update: New Prakas on Accommodation Tax
Subject: Tax

On March 20, 2024, the Ministry of Economy and Finance issued Prakas no. 173, which establishes the Accommodation Tax. This tax is a consumption tax that is levied on certain accommodation services provided by individuals or entities specified in the Prakas.
The tax rate that is relevant is 2%, and most of the regulations for collecting this tax are in line with those for Value Added Tax (VAT). In general, there have been no substantial alterations, as this Prakas only functions as the regulatory framework for the new taxes law.
