Notification of all bank accounts

All VAT payers are required to notify the Tax Office of all the bank accounts they use for business purposes (activities subject to VAT in Slovakia), regardless of whether the account is held in Slovakia or abroad (including cash-pool bank accounts).

Our solutions
  • Submission of notification of bank accounts used in respect of transactions subject to Slovak VAT to the Slovak tax office

VAT control of bank accounts

The tax office is entitled to demand from a company payment of VAT which was not paid by its supplier to the state budget if the company has paid the invoiced amount to a supplier’s bank account that is not listed in the register of bank accounts on the Financial Administration’s portal.

Our solutions
  • One-time or repeated check of bank accounts, allowing a company to identify bank accounts that suppliers have not reported to the tax administrator to reduce the risk a company will be required to pay VAT on behalf of a supplier
