Tourism industry indicates of issues with GoSL VAT reduction (Daily FT)

Chairman of the Tourist Hotels Association of Sri Lanka (THASL) Sanath Ukwatte, has indicated that the industry is facing issues with regards to VAT reduction, as the current VAT Act on tourism industry restricts the claim of input credit if output VAT is at 5%. As per the law, those with 5% output VAT cannot claim for input-output VAT calculation therefore end price for the consumer will increase by 3-4% and net benefit for the customer/guest which should have been 10% will be reduced to 5%.
