Taxation

The current Algerian tax system consists of 2 regimes the real[1] and the fixed regime.[2] This distinction issued from the reform implemented in 2007 when the taxation was revised. The main incentive to review the taxes was the fact that after the oil crisis taxes became the main resource of national income. That is why the incentive to work on its effectivity and to optimize it appeared in government.[3]

The fixed regime relies on the single fixed tax (the main change and innovation made by this reform) and the real regime consist of different taxes levied on taxpayer.
