Proposed VAT rate criticised

FINANCE Minister Ivan Mikloš has been criticised for his plans to set a flat VAT rate of 20 percent by both economy minister Robert Nemcsics and Slovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Peter Mihók.

Both say they would prefer a lower level of 15 percent. According to Mihók, 20 percent would be "above the pain barrier" for most customers.
