Ljubljana, 30 September (STA) - Government receipts from taxes and social security contributions widened by a tenth of a point to 37.3% of GDP, the first rise after two years of decline, the Statistics Office said.
The increase is a result of rising tax revenue on the back of higher VAT and taxes on exports.
As a share of GDP taxes, at 22.3%, were at the highest level since 2009, but in nominal terms they were on par with the figure for 2011.
Social security contributions, meanwhile, declined for the second year in a row in relative and nominal terms.
Contributions amounted to 15% of GDP, down 0.2 points over the year before.
