    Gov't approves reducing land wage fines owed by free zone investors by 50 percent

    February 4, 2021

    Amman, Feb. 3 (Petra) -- A Cabinet session, chaired by Prime Minister, Bisher Khasawneh, on Wednesday approved the decision of the Board of Directors of the Jordanian Group for Free and Development Zones, which includes reducing the land wage fines owed by investors in free zones by 50 percent.

    The decision, which stipulated that investors pay the full wages they are owed, comes within a period of one month from the date of the Cabinet's decision to support and stimulate and maintain the investment environment in free and development zones in light of the challenges they faced due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

    In addition, for the purposes of easing pressures on citizens in light of the economic conditions that the Kingdom is going through due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Cabinet decided to approve the cancellation of the financial claims issued by the Customs Department, such as the allowance for import fines for vehicles data cleared at Amman Customs Center, whose value exceeds JD10,000 before 21/9/2020.

    The cabinet decision stressed the need to continue collecting the fines for the customs declarations organized for the above purpose after this date and for the previously collected amounts of about JD27,481 to be refunded.

    On the other hand, the Cabinet decided to approve the decision of the Board of Directors of the Aqaba Development Corporation, which includes proposals to address the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic on investment in the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA).

    In addition, the government approved the recommendations of the Settlement and Reconciliation Committee, formed according to the foundations of settling the outstanding issues between taxpayers and the Income and Sales Tax Department, to settle the tax status of 360 companies and taxpayers who have had obligations in accordance with the provisions of the Income Tax Law and the General Sales Tax Law, based on their requests brought before the committee.
