The Lithuanian government of Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis has stepped back on its intentions of consolidating income-related taxes on the employee side, including the social insurance fees currently paid by the employee. The Cabinet has decided to shift its focus on reduction of the tax burden on the people with lowest income and unification of different tax regimes.
