Bulgaria VAT update

Bulgaria is introducing a range of VAT amendments to further harmonise its rules with the EU VAT Directive, recent ECJ rulings and other priorities. These include:

  • Introduction of the new EU treatment for VAT vouchers, including multi and single use voucher liabilities
  • Introduction of an import VAT deferment scheme to allow deferment of payment of VAT
  • The introduction of a B2C e-services registration threshold for MOSS of €10,000 per annum. This will ensure many micro digital service companies can provide services to consumers in other EU countries under their Bulgarian VAT registration
  • Extension of requirement to provide receipts for cash payments on online sales to consumers and businesses
  • Changes to the rules on VAT exemptions for international transport
  • Extension of the domestic reverse charge provision to supplies of certain crops – an anti-VAT fraud measure
