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.

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.
