Egypt: Social Media Advert Tax Law Under Consideration

Egypt’s Finance Minister has announced a draft public finances law and a law on taxing advertising on social media sites are under considerations. The proposed legislative developments are part of a wider initiative, including amendments to the country’s 2005 Income Tax Law, Egypt Law No. 91/2005. The draft social media law will impose taxes on adverts displayed on social media. The Minister mentioned Facebook specifically as a platform where adverts can be placed without sufficient control. He also said the Government will send a draft customs law to the House of Representatives in the coming weeks to consider.
