The 2023 finance bill is still the subject of much controversy. How professional organizations came out to protest in front of parliament over tax increases led by private sector bodies of doctors, pharmacists, accountants and medical tamers.

The protesters raised slogans calling for tax fairness, a revision of the 2023 Finance Act, and the abolition of the deduction from source principle.

In this context, Al-Khanash Sharaf, head of the Coordinating Syndicate of General Practitioners in the Private Sector, criticized “unfair measures against private professions” and “the principle of deduction from source, which will strike at all the measures a doctor takes to live.”

Sharaf told Hespress: “We are suffering from a tax burden and therefore the unfair contributions to the National Social Security Fund and the new measures will increase the burden on doctors.”

He added that the purpose of their protest “is to say enough about unfair measures and urgent measures that do not take into account the economic situation of private clinics that contribute greatly to the royal workshops related to social protection.”

For his part, Mostafa Al-Mouden, clerk general of the Syndicate for the Coordination of General Practitioners in the Private Sector, said: “We refuse to make deductions from the source and demand tax fairness,” adding in a statement to Hespress that “this position is a protest against injustice, which we face as we contribute health and social security to the mandatory tax.”

Diya al-Gharbi, head of the National Federation of Tamers of Medicine in Morocco, told Hespress that today’s protest “is meant to carry our voice to the parliamentarians in the House of Councilors”, noting that “this year has been a difficult year due to impact of the pandemic on small business continuity, in particular, and deductions from the source.”

And she explained: “Anyone who receives the amount from the company will be subject to tax deductions of 20 percent of income, not profits, not to mention the fact that making proactive deductions will make us look like we are constantly lending to the state.” .

Mohamed Lahbabi, head of the Confederation of Syndicates of Moroccan Pharmacists, said: “A group of liberal professions is meeting in front of parliament because every profession has its own demands for the 2023 finance bill.”

He added: “The project was accompanied by demands for a tax increase of 10-20 percent for small pharmacies that achieve an annual net profit of less than 300,000 dirhams, and an increase of more than 20 percent for large pharmacies that achieve an annual profit. net profit of more than 300 thousand dirhams”, stressing that “pharmacies live in a situation of great vulnerability, and the project will increase their vulnerability and push them into bankruptcy.”
