    The AmCham TAX COMMITTEE has recently addressed issues concerning the VAT that will be introduced upon the accession of Slovakia to the EU.
    After the accession of the Slovak Republic to the European Union (“EU or Community”) on May 1, 2004, Slovakia will become part of an economic territory with free movement of goods, capital, and persons. To implement the general principles, it was crucial to harmonize the relevant tax and other legislation of the respective EU member states.
    Below are comments on the implications of the value added tax (“VAT”) that will be introduced upon the accession of Slovakia to the Community, with emphasis on the new VAT concepts to be adopted. These comments are based on the Ministry of Finance’s draft of the Slovak VAT Act, which has been recently approved by the Slovak Government. If the VAT Act is approved by the Parliament and published in the Collection of Laws, it will become effective upon the accession of Slovakia to the EU.
    The new VAT law will introduce, among other significant changes, new treatment of transactions undertaken between Slovak entities and entities established in other EU member states (“intra-Community transactions”).
