Slovakia -Shrinking of self-employment -April 13, 2013

In the first two months of 2013 around 5,500 sole proprietors, working on the basis of so-called trade licences, delisted from the business register. The drop came after an even more considerable decrease in December 2012, when 8,000 people delisted, while about 1,000 new trade licenses were registered. The labour ministry expressed satisfaction and explained that one of the reasons for raising payroll taxes for self-employed people, a measure which came into force in January 2013, was to force some of them to cease operating as sole traders.
