Together, they amount to the “WCC+3” and between them have enough seats in the newly-elected Parliament to vote a government into office.At a session lasting several hours on November 27, the working group on finance policy agreed that the rate of value-added tax (VAT) should remain unchanged in 2022, except for sectors where it had been reduced to nine per cent as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic. These are restaurants, tour operators, books and baby foods.The meeting agreed that next year there should be an analysis regarding a proposal by the BSP to cut VAT on basic foodstuffs, services and medicines.
