Slovakia delays import VAT deferment

Plans to introduce import VAT deferment for importers into Slovakia have been delayed from the scheduled January 2017.

There is no proposed new date, indicated a long term shelving of the scheme designed to attract imports into the EU via Slovakia. The regime was set to mirror a highly successful Czech scheme, which has captured significant amounts of business for the Central European region.
