This project is designed to create rapid, sustainable and durable local development.
The project coordinator will reach a binding agreement with the tax authorities, before the project gets under way, to ensure that the tax authorities are not deprived of current tax revenue.
The tax authorities will define LETS activities carried out in LETS currencies under the project as non-commercial, and therefore non-taxable.
The project is based on a tax moratorium of at least 20 years on all LETS activities.
the moratorium, the following basic rules will apply:
-1. LETS exchanges where a user helps a friend, or performs a job on a "one-off" basis are not taxable.
-2. LETS exchanges involving activities not part of the normal business activities of the supplier are excluded.
-3. The expression "normal business activities" will be interpreted in the manner most favourable to the users.
-4. Normal LETS exchanges by businesses are taxable.
-5. All costs and business expenses are tax deductible.
-6. Businesses will be taxed in respect of LETS exchanges on the net profits they generate from them.
