EU VAT registration thresholds 2020

Below is a summary of the 2020 VAT registration annual thresholds for resident companies in the 27 EU member states, plus Norway, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

Non-residents face nil registration threshold

Generally, non-resident (no permanent establishment) businesses that must register for VAT in another EU state face a nil registration threshold. A major exception to this rule is ecommerce sellers to consumers, where there are special EU distance selling VAT thresholds.
