Answer ... During the global financial crisis, Greece entered into recession and its fiscal policies were tightened. In recent years, thanks to the implementation of growth-restructuring policies, the economy has returned to growth and a budgetary surplus has been achieved. In response to these events, the overall tax burden has begun to be gradually reduced. The Income Tax Code has already been amended to provide for the gradual decrease of the corporate income tax rate from 29% (for 2018) to 25% (for 2022 onwards). Also, beginning from 2019, the taxation of dividends has been reduced from 15% to 10%. In the following 12 months, further relaxation is anticipated.
