Lower house to vote on abolishing bill on electronic sales registers next week

The lower house will vote on the government's proposal to completely abolish the bill on electronic sales registers (EET) next Friday, the ctk news agency reported, citing the speaker of the lower house, Markéta Pekarová Adamová.

Although the ruling coalition has a majority in the lower chamber, the opposition ANO party, which introduced the bill, is expected to put up a fight for it, arguing that it reduced tax evasion and brought more funds to state coffers. The present coalition government of Petr Fiala claims the law is a big burden for entrepreneurs and questions its benefits for the state.
