21.06.2013| As Slovenia comes under close scrutiny for its disproportionately large financial services sector, the country’s government has indicated that it is planning a 2 % VAT rate rise to 22 % from 1 July 2013. The reduced VAT rate imposed on foodstuffs, books, pharmaceuticals, medical services, newspapers, admission to sporting cultural and entertainment events and hotels will also rise from 8.5 % to 9.5 %.

The Slovenian VAT rate is currently 20%, which was set in 2002.
