Taxation of American companies in Greece is not as major an issue as the lack of a stable taxation system, Greek-American business managers told Deputy Foreign Minister Terens Quick at a meeting in Thessaloniki on Friday.
The meeting was held in the context of the 83rd Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), where the United States is honored country.
According to a statement by Quick’s office, the business managers said ?the most important issue is that tax facts cannot keep changing frequently and at will, which results in businesses being unable to follow their budget plans.?
The visitors also proposed that a one-stop shop be set up, with its own digital platform, that would provide information on how to set up business in Greece instead of having entrepreneurs having to run around among several agencies.
On his side, the Greek minister proposed two things for the US, a clearinghouse for Greek imports to facilitate distribution in the American markets and an American-Greek chamber of commerce that would contribute to encouraging Greek exports.
US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt also attended the event, which he proposed should take place annually, given the momentum between the two countries.
