Slovakia’s governing Coalition Council to discuss proposed changes in tax laws

Proposed changes in laws concerning taxes and social and health insurance contributions are to be the subject of a meeting of party leaders of Slovakia's centre-right government scheduled for Tuesday, August 24, the SITA newswire wrote. The Coalition Council meeting will begin at 17:00. Announced changes in the unification and reduction of deductible flat expenditures, or payment of social and health insurance contributions from income earned on part-time work contracts do not have to be definite, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová said last week as reported by SITA. Paying these contributions from a share of profit remains the subject of further discussions. A large part of those who work on part-time contracts earn up to €166 monthly which is the minimum wage, according to the prime minister.

“We are considering whether these people should be affected by any of these changes at all,” she said. The aim of the cabinet is to find a solution which will not affect "ordinary people", Radičová said.
