Employee Benefits in Slovakia
Following independence in 1993, the Slovak government reformed taxation, healthcare, pensions and the social welfare system. These reforms helped the government to consolidate the budget and move towards joining the EU in 2004. The country also introduced several investor-friendly policies – including labor market liberalization and a flat 19% tax regime – which encouraged global investors to participate in the country’s economy until 2008, particularly in the automotive and electronic sectors.
