Recently a news report on a local radio station said that the government is calling for proposals from the general public & private sector for proposals for the 2016 budget. Here is our proposal as per the industry we are involved in - Reduce the Tax on Pay Television Subscribers.
At present pay television subscribers pay a whopping 27.55% in taxes. This is killing the industry not to mention the subscriber. Pay companies must band together & demand the reduction of these taxes.
The pay tv market in Sri Lanka is being held by taxation policies such as these & this should be reduced with immediate effect. We believe the reduction of the taxes will help the industry to flourish.
