VAT for restaurants might be lowered

“Slovakia supported this proposal of France,” Fico said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “If Slovakia can manage economically and financially, I am ready to go ahead here.”

Fico is convinced that restaurants will suffer heavily from the economic crisis since they are losing their customers. The proposal also corresponds with the government’s philosophy to lower VAT every time that the economic situation makes it possible, TASR reported Fico as saying. (TASR)
