How to Benefit from Decree 167/2017: Tax Reductions on Environmental and Sustainable Energy Products
Back in 2017, the Lebanese Government issued decree 167 (published in the Lebanese national Official Gazette on 23 February 2017). The decree is based on the Environment Law No. 444 and aims at promoting and supporting the use of environmentally-friendly products and services, including sustainable energy products, through the application of customs tax reductions and income tax reductions. Basil Fuleihan Finance Institute has previously published a guide report on the procedure to follow to benefit from tax deductions. LCEC encourages all companies and importers to benefit from the potential tax deductions offered by the decree.
