Dividends are to be exempted from income tax as of 2014, instead of 2015, according to a new plan by the coalition. The cabinet declared it will try to speed up implementation of all positive aspects of the changes that are to take effect in 2015. Unpopular changes planned for 2015, including a drop in the deduction for mortgage interest, would take effect as planned. The finance ministry is also working on accelerated depreciation, which might take effect in the second half of this year and last through 2014. / Could be slightly positive for Czech dividend names as e.g. TABAK or KOMB.
