The Value Added Tax, or VAT, in the European Union is a general, broadly based consumption tax assessed on the value added to goods and services. It applies more or less to all goods and services that are bough and sold for use or consumption in the European Union.

The VAT in Bulgaria is regulated by the Value Added Tax Act (VATA) and the Rules on the Application of the Value Added Tax Act (RAVATA), which implement in the Bulgarian legislation the rules of Directive 2006/112/EO on the common system of value added tax in the EU. The VAT in Bulgaria is at 20% with several exceptions.

Our chartered accountants will assist you to register your company for VAT, report and refund your VAT. The obligation to report and pay VAT arise after registration under VATA. The registration is obligatory or by choice of the interested individual.

When is VAT registration in Bulgaria required?

VAT registration is not required if the turnover in the last twelve months is up to BGN 50 000. However, there is a requirement that if a company provides services to VAT-registered customers from another EU Member State, it must be registered for VAT seven days prior to the service, its invoicing, and payment. If the company is not VAT registered, VAT will be charged on the invoice for purchases from the EU. When a Bulgarian company that is VAT registered carries out transactions with VAT-registered companies in another EU Member State, VAT is not charged. For services from third parties (non-EU Member States), VAT is not due. In the case of transactions with third parties with goods, customs must be passed.

What is the procedure for VAT registration in Bulgaria?

After submitting an application for VAT registration within seven days, the requested documents from the National Revenue Agency must be submitted, which include a turnover statement 12 months before the current one, bank statements at the time of filing the application, contract for using of the address of registration in the Commercial Register of the company, an accounting service contract, and a power of attorney. After submitting all the documents to the NRA, the person is registered for VAT up to seven days.
