The Slovenian government is expected to pass the fiscal rule bill on Thursday, which includes measures like tax registers aimed at fighting the grey economy.

The government is also expected to approve the pay cuts agreement that was reached with the trade unions for 2015, and adopt the fiscal rule implementation bill. The agreement with the trade unions that includes several new pay cuts was reached last Monday.

The government is also expected to adopt the fiscal rule implementation bill, under which Slovenia will gradually start applying the rule in 2016 budget, after its introduction to the opposition this week. The cabinet had failed to pass the bill last week after protests from the opposition, which did not have time to study the document.

Moreover, today’s government session is also expected to decide when Slovenia will introduce cash tax registers.

While the head of the special task force on the matter, Agriculture Minister Dejan Židan, wants the registers to be introduced as soon as possible, Finance Ministry State Secretary Mateja Vraničar has said that the earliest possible date would be September 1, 2015.
