The Greek government brought in an amendment late last night in parliament confirming the imposition of a one-off “reasonable fee” of 2% on devices for intellectual property beneficiaries on all mobile and smartphones. The levy will also be applicable to tablets, all types of desktop personal computers and laptops.
