Ethiopia raises VAT registration threshold

Ethiopia raised its VAT registration threshold from 20 February 2018.

The new level is ETB 1million – previously ETB 0.5m.  VAT is currently levied at 15%. Non-residents must also register if providing services. Otherwise, they are only liable to register if they have a permanent establishment in the country.
