(ČIA) The Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic submits an amendment to the Act on Excise Duties to the external comment procedure. Its purpose is to transpose a European directive. The main adjustments include a more effective interconnection of customs regimes for excise duties with the tax system. The implementation also introduces pan-European electronic system e-VDO for monitoring goods in free tax circulation. Minister of Finance Alena Schillerová (for ANO) stated that e-VDO will be an important and more effective tool in the fight against tax fraud. She added that a fully electronic solution will also relieve the administration of entrepreneurs.
