  • it makes long-distance sales in Slovakia to persons not registered for Slovak VAT purposes, and the total value of the supplied goods reaches EUR 35,000 in a calendar year (voluntary registration should be available, even if turnover is below this threshold); and
  • it makes long-distance supplies of goods to individuals for personal consumption, and these goods are subject to excise tax.
