Finance Ministry aims to lure super-rich to Greek tax register

The Greek government has taken a leaf out of Italy's law book to invite wealthy individuals to move their tax residency to Greece.

A clause will be included in next month's tax bill aimed at individuals and corporations with large deposits and offering significant incentives for registering with the Greek tax authorities.

The Greek government's decision on Tuesday to leave the cabinet chairs empty during a parliamentary debate on the creation of a special committee to investigate possible crimes committed by former alternate justice minister Dimitris Papangelopoulos in connection with the Novartis inquiry bears a significant symbolic weight.
