Greece introduced a new Continuous Transaction Controls (CTC) scheme, myDATA – an eAccounting system with eReporting elements, that requires taxpayers to transmit transactional and accounting data to the tax administration, in real-time or periodically, which populates a set of online ledgers maintained on the government portal. With taxpayers transmitting transaction data to the government portal myDATA system brings Greece in line with the global trend towards CTCs.
