Taxation of international executives
Individuals residing in Slovakia are, in principle, subject to Slovak income tax on their worldwide income (i.e. unlimited tax liability). Non-residents are in Slovakia subject to tax only on income from Slovak sources (i.e. limited tax liability).
Slovak sourced income includes e.g. income for work performed in the territory of Slovak Republic, income from independent business done via a permanent establishment, income from services provided in Slovakia , interest income, license fees and also income derived from rental or sale of property which is located in the territory of Slovak Republic.
Double taxation treaties concluded between Slovakia and respective countries/jurisdictions may however provide exceptions to these general principles.
The official currency of Slovakia is the Euro (EUR).
Herein, the host country/jurisdiction refers to the country/jurisdiction to which the employee is assigned. The home country/jurisdiction refers to the country/jurisdiction where the assignee lives when they are not on assignment.
