A Final Solution of Informality Problem on Self-employed and Employed in Kosovo

Nakije Myftar Kida


A higher level of implementation of tax legislation, efficiency in the Tax Administration of Kosovo (TAK), cooperation between TAK and municipal levels, stimulated and encouraged the reduction of informality of the self-employed and workers in Kosovo businesses. This paper examines two types of employment in Kosovo (employed and self-employed) in 9 Regions (Ferizaj, Gjakova, Gjilan, Mitrovica, Peja, Prishtina 1, Pristina 2, Prishtina 3 and Prizren) and the Department of Large Taxpayers (DLT). To study the dynamics of employment growth, evidence was obtained from the employment figures from the TAK central level, the 2013-2016 period on monthly and yearly basis. The employment performance results have a two-sided positive impact, first they examine the efficiency of TAK in reducing the informality of self-employed and workers in Kosovo, and secondly they examine business co-operation towards reducing informality. The assessment of results is based on descriptive employment statistics for large regions separately.
