Portuguese industry threatens court action over new tax

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Portuguese medical devices industry association, Apormed, is threatening to take the government to court unless it abolishes its new tax on health products. The tax, which for devices consists of a 0.4% levy on the product's selling price to the end-user, will only apply to companies located in Portugal. Apormed considers the tax to be in breach of EU competition law and is willing to challenge its legality at European level.
