Are all obligors of the Slovak Republic disclosed in the Register?

The Register discloses persons towards whom the Slovak Republic has receivables which arose after 1 January 2014 and which are covered by Act No. 374/2014 Coll. on State Receivables and on Amendments and Supplements to Certain Acts, as amended (hereinafter referred to as “the Act on State Receivables”). Details are provided in the “About the Register” bookmark.

Why are the obligors towards whom the Slovak Republic has receivables disclosed in the Register?

The obligation to record obligors of the state is stipulated by Section 5 of the Act on State Receivables. The Register provides for central records of outstanding receivables of the state and informs obligors about the existence of their debt towards the Slovak Republic.

Are state receivables recorded in the Register in their current amount?

According to Section 5 (2) (c) of the Act on State Receivables, the Register contains the sum of principal of the state receivable. Thus, the attribution of the state receivable is not recorded in the Register (for instance, default interests, default fees, etc.). Thus, the amount of the state receivable reported in the Register does not have to correspond to the actual amount of the receivable, especially if the attribution of the receivable is claimed from the obligor together with the principal of the state receivable.

Why is one receivable of the state reported in the Register twice?

This can happen due to the statutory period of thirty days during which the administrators of state receivables shall update data in the Register. This is especially the case when administration of state receivable is being transferred between administrators of state receivables, i.e. if the original administrator of the state receivable has not excluded the state receivable from the Register yet and the new administrator of the state receivable already registered the receivable in the Register.

Are the published data complete and up-to-date?

The period from 1 January 2016 to 1 July 2016 was set as interim period when obligors and state receivables are being registered by single administrators of state receivables in compliance with the Act. According to the Act, the Register should contain all obligors and all state receivables which the administrators of state receivables are obliged to publish in the Register, namely since 1 July 2016.

Administrators of state receivables are obliged to update data in the Register not later than within 30 days following the day when they learned about the change of any of the facts published in the Register. The recorded data are of information nature.

Who should I contact if the data published in the Register are not correct or I am incorrectly reported as an obligor?

Should you have any questions as for the incorrectness of the data reported in the Register, contact the administrator of state receivable who registered the receivable or who is stated as the administrator of the state receivable.

Who controls whether the data in the Register are updated?

In compliance with Section 20 of the Act of State Receivables, the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic and the Government Audit Office perform the government audit of compliance with the provisions of the Act and special regulations in relation to the administration, disposal, exercise and recovery of state receivables, including the meeting of the obligations of administrators of state receivables in relation to the recording of obligors and state receivables in the Register.
