The State Revenue Service (hereinafter – SRS) annually welcomes Latvia’s best taxpayers – smart, honest, sustainable and responsible entrepreneurs who form the basis of Latvia’s economy. This year, the largest taxpayers are honored for the twenty-fourth year, and today SRS welcomes the taxpayers of the Latgale planning region in the category of large, medium and small companies.
With sincere joy and gratitude, the SRS congratulates the winners in the Latgale region:

Also, such companies are an excellent example of the fact that those companies that are ready to work can successfully do so in any region of our country,” says I. Jaunzeme.
In total, this year SRS will present awards to 15 Latvian companies, awarding one company in the category of large, one medium and one small company in each of the five regions of Latvia. In the near future, the awards will go to the laureates of other regions as well.
