The value-added tax (VAT) is a type of consumption tax which is placed on a specific product every time value is added in a production phase, as well as at its final sale. The value-added tax is more often used in the EU than in other countries of the world.
After entering in the European Union, Slovakia gave its approval for a VAT Act containing most of the guidance and regulations for foreign companies in need of VAT registration and of completing VAT returns. Our specialists in company formation can offer you personalized advice on how to open a company in the Slovak Republic, so feel free to contact us.
