Foreign-owned companies in Slovenia to hold first summit


The business executives will discuss measures for improving tax environment after the government recently announced changes to the tax system.

Apart from Cerar, Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek and Finance Ministry State Secretary Mateja Vraničar Erman will be at hand.

The Finance Ministry announced at the end of February it would seek revenue-neutral tax changes as it presented yet another attempt to tweak the tax code.

Extensive consultations with business and trade unions were launched, while the blueprint is expected to be unveiled in the summer.

The Forum of Foreign Investors in Slovenia, operating as part of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GZS), has been advocating lower taxes on labour, higher incentives for employing of experts and changes to the income tax brackets.

Foreign-owned companies in Slovenia recently issued their first document entitled Declaration TNI, analysing the situation and proposing measures to make Slovenia more attractive for domestic and foreign investment.

The document will be presented at today's summit, while Cerar is expected to comment on it before joining the debate on proposed tax changes.
