Bulgaria lowers Intrastat thresholds

Bulgaria is to lower the reporting threshold for Intrastat filings from 1 January 2017.

The new threshold for reporting arrivals of goods from other EU member states will be BGN 410,000, down from BGN 460,000 per annum. The dispatches threshold will also drop from BGN 260,000 to BGN 240,000 per annum.

Intrastat is the monthly filing listing the movement of goods from one member state to another. It includes sales of goods to foreign customers, but also the movement of goods by companies between stock warehouses.
