Corporate-tax-in-Slovakia.jpgOpening a company in Slovakia means enrolling with the country’s taxation system and paying the levies imposed by the government. Companies in Slovakia are subject to the income tax imposed on the business profits they make here, but also on other sources of income.

Below, our company formation agents in Slovakia explain how companies are taxed here. They can also advise on the procedure of starting a business in Slovakia.

Tax rules imposed on companies in Slovakia

All companies operating in Slovakia, including subsidiaries and branch offices of foreign companies, will be taxed as follows:

  1.        in order to be subject to taxation in Slovakia, a company must have it control in this country;
  2.        the corporate tax will be imposed on the global income of a company;
  3.        Slovak branch offices of foreign companies will be taxed on the incomes earned in this country;
  4.        the corporate tax will be applied to the taxable income earned by the company;
  5.        the tax year for which the corporate tax is applied is the same as the calendar year.

Slovak companies can modify the fiscal year with the tax authorities.
