Under threat of a governmental break-up, Slovenia has decided to not to increase its VAT rate from 22% to 24% in May. 

The proposed sales tax hike had been suggested on 31 March 2014 in a bid to ensure a vital new bond issue got away.  It was designed to fill the gap left when a new tax on real estate was struck down by the Constitutional Court.

The rise comes as the country's large financial sector continues to struggle following the Euro crisis.  Slovenia raised its VAT rate to 22% in July 2013.
