State will pay VSH €483,000

The state is to pay €483,000 to VSH Development, a company with which the Tax Directorate had signed a deal to rent offices in Košice. Tax authority head Miroslav Mikulčík cancelled the deal with VSH Development and instead signed a contract with another company, Nitra Invest, sparking a controversy after it was reported that Nitra Invest’s owner is also a regional SDKÚ official.

Mikulčík said, as quoted by the Sme daily, that the state does not have to pay any financial compensation to VSH. Instead, the tax authority says the one-off payment is for some reconstruction work which was ordered by the Tax Directorate during the term of Smer nominee Igor Šulaj. Mikulčík said that apart from the construction work already done, the company will not receive any money from state coffers.
