Bulgarian Finance Minister Simeon Djankov has issued an ordinance waiving the value-added tax on donation campaigns via SMS Text Messages.

“Whenever campaigns for charity, donations, and philanthropy are organized, in which the subscribers send SMS Text Messages or make phone calls, the mobile operator does not need to calculate VAT into the donation sum,” states Djankov’s ordinance published Friday.

The ordinance is an appendix to the VAT Act.
