Moldova Tax on Reinvested ProfitsNovember 2009
The Moldovan government plans to impose a 10% tax on reinvested profits.
Currently reinvested profits are tax exempt.
The plan is strongly opposed by Moldovan producers, claiming that reinvesting profits in new advanced technologies is a must in order to compete the global crisis.
The government also plans to increase excise duties on tobacco, petrol and luxury cars by 20%, in order to access a three year financing of $ 590m by the International Monetary Fund, IMF.
