Slovenia has a progressive tax system
. This means that as the income increases, the tax rate also increases. This is reasonable because you will only have to pay taxes based on the amount of income that you earn. Corporations that are considered as residents of Slovenia are taxed differently from those that are non-residents. Resident corporations are those that are incorporated under Slovenian law while non-residents are formed under foreign laws. This means that if you open a Slovenian company
, it is either taxed from all sources worldwide, or just from within the country. Different taxes are also imposed on persons and corporations and the kind of income gained. Those who are liable to pay taxes have to do so to the Slovenian Revenue Office
and the Slovenian Customs Office
for VAT and excise duties.
