Taxes and other charges are vital for the normal operation of every country. They are paid by both natural and legal entities from their income as well as from their property. Tax collection is in the public’s interest and tax authorities employ a wide range of different instruments for this purpose.
When accounting taxes, entrepreneurs cannot and must not claim ignorance since the lack of knowledge related to tax law may even prove harmful for them. This is why we are offering a brief overview of the taxes and the tax system in Slovenia below.
