The budget envisages a deficit of 100 billion crowns.


The approved budget will stabilize health care, lower taxes for families with children, lower taxation of drugs, indexation of pensions and it will also improve the remuneration of workers in the public sector.

It is one of the pro-growth measures that will increase greater household consumption and individual consumption. Tax credit on second and third child increases and tax credit for working pensioners will be restored.

Ministry for Regional Development will record largest annual increase of money, total by almost 26 percent to 14.7 billion. The largest decline in revenue confesses Ministry of Environment, and almost 28 percent to 9.4 billion. Most chapters of the budget get more money than this year.

This is an increase from the approved budget for this year by 1.5 percent. The Ministry of Justice also gets more money - salaries of the security forces should increase by five percent.
