Slovakia Delays Implementation of E-Invoicing Until 2025
Initially set to go into effect on January 1, 2024, the bill's implementation has now been postponed until 2025.
In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, governments worldwide are leveraging technology to streamline business operations and enhance transparency. One such initiative is the proposed bill in Slovakia requiring businesses to report their invoices electronically in real time. Initially set to go into effect on January 1, 2024, the bill's implementation has now been postponed until 2025.
This delay comes as a public version of the legislation has yet to be released, leaving many businesses uncertain about the specific requirements they will need to comply with. The Ministry of Finance has acknowledged this uncertainty and expressed its intention to provide businesses with ample time to prepare for the new regulations.
The Ministry has stated that it aims to give businesses at least 12 months to prepare for the new e-invoicing regulations. This preparation period is crucial for businesses to adjust their processes, upgrade their systems, and train their staff to ensure seamless compliance with the new invoicing requirements.
However, the current state of the legislative process, coupled with the upcoming Directive on VAT in the digital age, has necessitated the postponement of the law's effective date until 2025. This delay provides businesses with additional time to prepare for the transition, but it also extends the period of uncertainty.
