The State Revenue Service (VID) will sack 330 employees by year-end, said the service's director Ilze Cīrule on Latvian Radio. Together with a personnel cut starting in spring last year this amounts to sacking about 15% of the service's employees.
Last year the service laid off 220 employees.
Starting February the service's branches outside Rīga will switch to a three-day workweek with the employees doing administrative tasks on the days between.
Cīrule said the move comes as clients are starting to opt for phone consultations, emails and electronic declarations.
