The Financial Administration expects that there will be more such cases, said its head of František Imrecze, adding that firms should be more careful when deciding who to do business with. Companies who conduct business with firms listed as risky should expect to have to pay the VAT.

The main aim of the register is to let entrepreneurs know if they are conducting business with risky subjects, according to SITA.
