The Egyptian government has approved draft legislation for the introduction of a new tax dispute settlement process to resolve approximately EGP 47 billion in outstanding disputes. Under the new process, pending tax disputes currently being handled through the courts would instead be settled through new independent committees separate from the tax authority. If a taxpayer wishes to have a case settled by an independent committee, a request is to be made with the tax authority, after which court proceedings are suspended for up to three months while the committee works to resolve the case.
The legislation is now subject to examination and approval by the parliament.
