Slovakian VAT registration
What are the Slovakian VAT registration thresholds?
What information is required to get a Slovakian VAT number and registration
The Slovakian tax office will require the appropriate forms to be completed (in Slovak), and submitted with the following documentation:
- VAT certificate to prove the business is registered for VAT elsewhere in the EU, if appropriate.
- An original extract (either notarized or stamped by a court) from the company’s national trade register translated in Slovak by an official translator.
- Passport of representative of the company.
Non-resident businesses should submit the registration form and supporting documentation to the Slovakian tax authorities in Bratislava before the start of any taxable activity.
What is the format of a Slovakian VAT number
Once the registration has been granted, usually within three weeks of submitting the application form, a unique Slovakian VAT number is allocated to the company. All EU member states have a fixed format for their VAT numbers. In Slovakia, it includes 10 digits and the prefix SK.
Slovakian Number Format
Once a business has its VAT number, it is free to commence trading, and charging Slovakian VAT. It must comply with the Slovakian VAT compliance rules, and file regular returns (see Slovakian VAT Returns briefing).
