Ministry plans special tax office for big firms

The Ministry of Finance is planning to create a special new tax office to deal with 800 or so of the Czech Republic’s biggest companies, Hospodářské noviny reported. The Chamber of Deputies has already approved the change as part of an amendment on budgetary rules and the Senate should vote on it this month, the newspaper said. A ministry representative said the move could lead to a fall in tax evasion, while Hospodářské noviny said many companies welcomed the idea.
