The Hellenic Independent Tax Authority (AADE) has created an advertising campaign that encourages tourists to demand a receipt before paying for goods.
The “Apodixi, please” campaign is supported by a YouTube video and banners at airports, as well as a webpage.
AADE says that, under Greek law, all suppliers of goods and services are required to issue receipts to their customers. The consumer is not obliged to pay if the receipt is not issued.
The Authority also states that all hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, car rental companies and in general almost all providers of goods and services (with some exceptions such as taxi drivers and kiosks) are required to accept debit, credit or prepaid cards.
