Government euphemistically calls it ‘eco contribution,’ but Karl Schembri says it is a blanket tax that has little to do with environmentally friendly consumption

It had to be announced after the Trade Fair. When else could the Prime Minister announce such wide-ranging taxes to be imposed on almost all kinds of home appliances, telephones, televisions, batteries, tyres, cans, bottles and toiletries?

Time when contribution shall fall due

The eco-contribution shall be due at the time at which the products are “placed on the market”: (where “placed on the market” means when a product is transferred from the manufacturing stage with the intention of distribution on the market in Malta, or when a product is brought into Malta with the intention of distribution on the market)
Provided that where products are placed under a customs procedure on entry into Malta, placing on the market shall be deemed to take place when they leave the customs procedure.

At a heated meeting organised by the GRTU yesterday for its members, importers were told by Parliamentary Secretary Tonio Fenech that they will be expected to pay the new eco-contribution on items that are currently in stock.
There was no love lost between GRTU Director General Vince Farrugia and Fenech on the controversial tax government intends to introduce by August. Farrugia charged government with ignoring the social partners saying that the tax was an imposition.

The frustration of having been in government for 17 years with so little to show for it often surfaces in the discourse of government politicians. They are in power. They have been in power for an inordinately long time. And yet they are constantly humiliated in being unable to achieve their targets. The lack of enforcement is Malta's prime environmental malady.
