Although it was initially announced that the natural persons will be the taxpayers of the ecotax, with the obligation to pay RSD 100 a month, i.e. RSD 1,200 a year, this proposition has been withdrawn. Accordingly, the legal entities and entrepreneurs remain the subjects obliged to pay this tax. As the Government states, this system is adjusted to objectively determine the tax amount, as well as to contribute to the transparency of the business entities’ performances.
By adopting this regulative, the Republic of Serbia has expressed its attempt to reach the European Union standards, given that its main goal is to increase the financial assets for the environment protection. The only remaining question is how efficient the realization of the ecotax payments will be and how exactly will the assets be used.
The deadline for filing the ecotax return expires in just a couple of days – have you already determined in which category does your company fit?
