Cape Verde’s telecoms regulator Agencia Nacional das Comunicacoes (ANAC) has altered the rate of VAT to be applied to fixed telephony services, in line with the 2013 state budget which stipulated that VAT will cover 100% of the value of taxable services. Under the terms of Deliberation No.1/CA/2013, VAT will be applied to 100% of the retail price for fixed telephony services, replacing the previous rate of 60% of the cost. As a result of the changes, the cost of a fixed line subscription will increase from CVE392.4 to CVE414.0 (USD4.58 to USD4.83) whilst fixed to mobile calls will increase CVE24.35 to CVE25.69 and local fixed to fixed calls will grow CVE6.10 to CVE6.44.
