Below you will find some examples:
- You are importing goods in Bulgaria from a country outside the European Union (e.g. from China or Turkey). Subsequently you are selling these goods in Bulgaria or in other EU countries.
- You buy goods in Bulgaria (with Bulgarian Value Added Tax) and you deliver these goods to customers in other EU countries or you are exporting these goods to customers based in countries outside the European Union.
- You buy goods in Bulgaria (including Bulgarian VAT) and subsequently you sell these goods to customers based in Bulgaria.
- You are organizing a conference, workshop, seminar or congress in Bulgaria and you charge registration or a fee for admission.
- You are selling online products to private persons in Bulgaria and you are reaching the threshold of BGN 70.000 for distance sales.
- You are selling online products via Amazon. And Amazon is asking for a VAT registration number. When you sell online products in several EU countries using the so called Pan-European FBA Programme, you will have to register directly for the VAT. The Amazon warehouses are so called Amazon fulfilment centres. FBA is an abbreviation for Fulfilment by Amazon.
- You are bringing your own goods over to Bulgaria from another EU country. In this case the delivery is a so called fictive EC sales delivery.
We will check if you have a tax liability in Bulgaria, and when necessary take care of the VAT registration there, the submission of VAT returns and requests for refund of VAT paid (deductible turnover tax).
