VAT on legal services as of July 1st

Under the latest tax reform, in particular the provisions of Law 3842/23-4-2010, the exemption from VAT on legal services is abolished with effect as of July 1st. This change affects lawyers (with the exception of in-house counsels), notaries, process servers and land registrars. Legal services will be subject to VAT at the regular rate of 23%. The total amount of fees shall be taxable, that is the amount paid for services rendered, plus any other dispensation directly linked to those fees.
