The Montenegrin authorities have adopted a package of amendments to the Tax Code. In particular, the amendments will change the rules of value added tax payment. The country introduces a reduced tax rate amounting to 7%. The companies from the tourism and services sectors can benefit from this exemption. The exceptions will include the catering establishments that serve alcoholic and carbonated beverages, coffee, as well as carbonated beverages with added sugar.

In addition, Montenegro will introduce a zero tax rate on the supply of goods or services under the donation contract with state bodies and organizations. The medical companies and organizations working to combat the consequences caused by epidemics of infectious diseases will also be able to take advantage of this exemption.
