ArabFinance: Attorneys will keep paying a flat value-added tax (VAT) on their services, under a renewed cooperation protocol between the Egyptian Lawyers Syndicate and both of the finance and justice ministries.

The agreement imposes VAT on legal services and court proceedings carried out by law corporates, where VAT for proceedings in the court of first instance is set at EGP 40 and those in the court of appeals at EGP 60.

Legal cases filed in the courts of cassation, administrative, constitutional, and international arbitration will be required a VAT of EGP 200.

The agreement was reportedly renewed in September 2018 after it had been initially inked in April 2017.
