On January 1st, 2011 the Portuguese VAT rate increased from 21 % up to 23 %.
Caller rate announcement:
Portuguese Carriers don´t implement caller rate announcements. Service Providers aren´t obliged to implement such announcements neither.
Including the tariffs in advertisements is not obligatory.
Service Providers which decide in favour of caller rate announcements or inclusion of tariffs in advertisements are advised, to mention the prices excluding VAT and indicate that VAT has to be added.
€ 0,10 + IVA, por minuto, da rede fixa
€ 0,25 + IVA, por minuto, da rede móvel
Many Providers are handling this issue in such a manner. It´s advantage is that in case of changes in the VAT rate the announcements and advertisements don´t have to be adapted.
