Home / Company registration for VAT


The accounting of legal entities in Bulgaria is carried out in accordance with the international GAAP system. Some taxes (such as corporate or payroll taxes) are paid by all companies.
Company registration for VAT


Registration of a company for VAT is only required in some cases, for example, if the company's annual turnover exceeds 20,000 euros. Taxable turnover includes the tax bases of completed taxable supplies, regardless of whether they were paid by the recipient. Upon reaching such an annual turnover, the legal entity is obliged to register as a VAT payer. Registration is carried out in accordance with the Law on VAT (“Law on Value Added”).

Important! You do not need to wait until the end of the calendar year to register. If for a period of 12 consecutive months, the turnover has exceeded the indicated amount, you need to register for VAT, and do this within two weeks after the expiration of the tax period. In addition, such registration is necessary if the company operates internationally and has relationships with counterparties from other countries.

In the absence of mandatory grounds for VAT registration, it can be done voluntarily. Usually there is no need for this, since taxes have to be paid more, and this must be done every month, and not once a year. At the same time, it becomes possible to refund the spent VAT in the event that the planned income cannot be obtained.

VAT refund is practically a free loan of funds that are returned to circulation for a certain time. Value added tax (VAT in Bulgaria), which is 20%, is paid by companies that are registered for VAT. Payments are made from assets, services that are provided on the territory of Bulgaria, from goods that are imported into the country. Exports of goods and services provided outside Bulgaria are not subject to this tax.

After registration

VAT payers are recorded in a special register of the National Revenue Agency. Each company included in this register is assigned a unique VAT number. Subsequently, the tax is paid monthly, within 10 days after the end of the reporting period. If the company is not registered for VAT, taxes are paid once a year
