Abstract

This article studies the effects of tax thresholds on the behavior of small firms using the tax administration data of the universe of the Albanian firms during and after the anti-informality campaign of the year 2015. The main comparisons are between the year 2014, 2015 and 2016. The features of the firms that did bunch in 2015 were evaluated through a Probit regression. The bunching did persist through the three years in discussion, so it is not a temporary behavior. At the end, the tax threshold does influence in the growth of the firms, especially those firms that have a turnover just under the first threshold.
