Greek shipowners will pay taxes on their vessels registered abroad the first time in decades although their other fiscal advantages will remain unchanged, a source from the Merchant Marine Ministry said on January 11, 2013. An agreement between the government and the shipowners that will be part of the new tax bill the Greek parliament is expected to approve late on Friday night will alter a fiscal system virtually unchanged since 1955 said the source.
