Iceland doubles VAT registration threshold

Iceland has increased the annual taxable sales threshold for VAT registration from ISK1million to ISK2million. This will apply from 1 January 2017.

The threshold only applies to resident businesses.  Non-resident businesses selling taxable supplies locally and who have to register face a nil threshold.
