Bratislava accounts for bulk of taxes

TAX collection in Slovakia is uneven, with Bratislava, the seat for many companies, unsurprisingly representing the largest share of tax revenues. The capital and its surroundings accounted for 74 percent of the nation-wide gross revenues from tax receipts in 2012, the SITA newswire reported based on information provided by the Financial Administration.

The capital and its surroundings accounted for 74 percent of the nation-wide gross revenues from tax receipts in 2012, the SITA newswire reported based on information provided by the Financial Administration.

In 2012, the tax administration collected nearly €12 billion in taxes while value-added tax refunds amounted to €6.4 billion. Gross revenues, as the difference in these figures, amounted to €5.5 billion.

The tax office in Trenčín accounted for the second highest share of the gross revenues, 8.4 percent, followed by the tax office in Banská Bystrica at 6.9 percent. Taxes collected by tax offices shrank by 1.2 percent compared with 2011, while gross revenues decreased by 5.4 percent y/y.
