International Global Payroll and Taxation in Slovenia

Employment related taxes

Personal income tax (PIT). A resident is obligated to pay PIT from all income, sourced both in and outside of Slovenia (principle of worldwide taxation).

A non-resident is obligated to pay PIT from all income sourced in Slovenia.

PIT is calculated considering five tax brackets. The tax brackets are determined for one year in advance.

Nontaxable payments. Non-deductible costs for assignees include contributions by the employer to pension plans not approved by the Slovenian Ministry of Labor and not registered with the Slovenian tax authorities, meal allowances, reimbursement of commuting costs, business trips costs and accommodation costs if paid out under conditions different from those that need to be met in order to consider these contributions as non-taxable in the Personal Income Tax Act and in amounts exceeding those determined in the Government Act as non-taxable. If the above criterion is not satisfied, the aforesaid remuneration shall be considered as benefits in kind for assignees.

Social security contributions. In addition to PIT, individuals must pay compulsory social security contributions. Both employer and employee must contribute. Contributions are withheld by the employer at the time of payment of income. Self-employed persons must pay income tax and social security contributions themselves. The basis is the gross amount of income.

Payroll Cycle in Slovenia

The salary is paid for payment periods, which may not be longer than one month. The salary shall be paid no later than 18 days after the period.

Non-payroll taxes in Slovenia

A standard VAT rate applies to all taxed supplies.

Non-EU companies must appoint a fiscal representative.

A VAT return must be submitted for each tax period separately, also in case of no transactions. The deadline for submitting the VAT return is the last business day of the month following the end of the tax period. In the latter case, also the Recapitulative Statement needs to be submitted. All forms are submitted electronically.

The payment of the VAT liability is to be done until the last working day of the month. In case of VAT surplus, the tax authorities refund it onto the bank account of the taxable person in 21 days after the date of the submission of the form.
