Bulgaria raises VAT registration threshold 2024

Annual threshold for VAT restoration rises to BGN 160,000 from 1 January 2024

The Bulgarian National Assembly is reviewing a rise in the annual VAT registration threshold from 1 January 2024. It will increase from the current BGN 100,000 (approx. €51,000) to BGN 160,000 (approx. €82,000).

Bulgaria estimates that 200 000 companies in Bulgaria would be exempted from mandatory VAT registration. Depending on how many companies choose to de-register, the state coffers will lose between 85 million and 130 million leva, they said.

At the same time, it is removing the obligation for non-EU businesses registering in Brussels under the non-Union OSS/IOSS to appoint a fiscal representative.
