Slovakia's tax offices will start to its previous IS RDS information system developed by Novitech company after an expert team made this recommendation following a series of tests on the new KONS information system that was supposed to replace the old system, the Finance Ministry’s spokesperson, Martin Jaroš, told the TASR newswire.

"[The expert team] recommended launching the IS RDS system for the time being, while the KONS system should be further developed. After KONS is ready, it should be put into full operation," Jaroš stated, as quoted by TASR.

The IS RDS system should begin working again on the evening of April 2 and is expected to be fully implemented on April 18. The price for re-launching the old system will be €600,000, according to Mária Machová, the director of the Financial Administration.
