Small companies, the self-employed, employees and people working under a temporary employment agreement known as “na dohodu” will all pay less on taxes as of next year.

This will be possible thanks to two amendments to the law on income tax approved by the parliament. Submitted by the junior coalition parties comprising the Slovak National Party (SNS) and Most-Híd, they propose changing the non-taxed part of the tax base and the income tax paid by small companies and the self-employed.

They still require the signature of President Zuzana Čaputová. If she signs, the amendments will come into force in January 2020.

What will change?
