On July 1, 1999, the Republic of Slovenia implemented a value-added tax system for the taxation of goods and services. Since January 1, 2007, a new Value Added Tax Act – VAT-1 has been in effect, which has been changed numerous times, primarily in response to revisions in Council Directive 2006/112/ EC, which Slovenia, as a European Union member state, is required to implement into its legislation.
Most EU VAT legislation is based on directives. EU VAT Directive 2006/112/EC is the most important EU VAT directive. Each Member State is bound by EU law, nevertheless the application and implementation of these directives are up to each member state as the directive must be transposed into national law by each Member State.
