Sweden VAT threshold proposal

Sweden has proposed introducing a VAT registration threshold for resident companies from 2017.

Sweden currently does not have a VAT registration threshold – companies or individuals are liable to register for VAT upon providing any taxable supply. The government has now sent to the Parliament a proposal for a SEK 30,000 annual threshold from 1 January 2017.
