Athens, April 30, 2013

With four simple amendments to article 43 of Law 4141, the Hellenic State has found an immediate solution to the problem concerning tax clearance certificates of Greek expatriates.

Thus, Greek expatriates who have or earn real income in Greece will now be able to declare themselves foreign residents and file, together with their tax declaration, either a statement declaring that they are tax residents of another country or the tax settlement notice or a copy of the tax declaration that they filed in their country of residence.

“Following systematic efforts, we have managed to resolve the matter and the new framework allows for considerable flexibility”, noted Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Kostas Tsiaras in an exclusive statement that he gave to the WEB-TV of the Athens News Agency – Macedonian Press Agency.

Thus, the anguish of hundreds of thousands of Greek expatriates regarding their new tax status in Greece has finally come to an end. Greek expatriates expressed their anguish on the matter concerning double taxation to the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Kostas Tsiaras during the Deputy Minister’s visits to various European countries, as well as to America and, primarily, Australia. These amendments resolve the matter despite the fact that just ten days ago, on March 29, 2013, an extension for the submission of supporting documents had been provided until June 28, 2013.

Referring to the new amendments, Kostas Tsiaras, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs who is  responsible for matters concerning Greek expatriates, in an exclusive statement that he gave to the Athens News Agency – Macedonian Press Agency, noted “The relationship of trust between the Hellenic State and Greek expatriates can only be built on the basis of credibility”.

“Our Prime Minster Antonis Samaras”, he added “had stated that he was committed to resolving the very important matter concerning the issue of tax clearance certificates. With the opportunity that is being given to me, I would like to inform all the Greek expatriates that, following systematic efforts, this matter has been resolved and that the new framework provides considerable flexibility.”

“During this difficult time for our country, the (Hellenic) State will do everything it possibly can to resolve, in the best possible manner, matters that concern Greek expatriates”, concluded Mr. Kostas Tsiaras.

The new amendment clarifies that the above statement, in the event Greek expatriates choose to file this statement together with their Greek tax declaration, must be issued either by the tax service of their country of residence or by any public or municipal or other recognised authority. Their tax declaration, which will concern only their income that arises in Greece, together with the above supporting documents, must necessarily be filed in due time, otherwise, if they do not file the necessary supporting documents within the specific deadlines that the Minister of Finance will set with his decision, the liable persons will be considered residents of Greece and they will be subject to taxation for their world income.
