The Director of the Tax Administration of the Republic of Srpska, Goran Maričić, today paid a working visit to the Financial Administration of Slovenia, where he had a meeting with the director Peter Grum and with whom he agreed an even stronger joint fight against tax evasion and fraud.
This working meeting is the continuation of a good and continuous cooperation between the two tax administrations, where the leaders of these two institutions discussed various topics, including further improvement of the exchange of information between these two tax administrations and joint tax audits, with the aim to suppress and expose the attempts of tax fraud and evasion, as well as the realization of previously arranged projects in the future.
As agreed on this meeting, activities shall be taken to speed up and simplify administrative procedures, so that citizens of Slovenia, that is, the Republic of Srpska, can exercise their rights in this respect easier. Additionally, the meeting emphasized that fast and timely exchange of information between these two institutions is the key to fighting tax fraud and evasion, and, among other things, a more comprehensive exchange of information on assets and companies of the citizens of Slovenia in the Republic of Srpska and vice versa was specified.
With this respect, Maricic and Grum also discussed joint activities when it comes to tax audits, which in some cases would be carried out simultaneously in both countries in relation to the same taxpayer being the subject of control, given the growing number of Slovenian citizens in the Srpska and vice versa, and support was given to this possibility of even more concrete cooperation.
