Bulgarian New Intrastat Thresholds in 2018

As we already informed, Bulgaria updated the Intrastat thresholds as from 2018.

6 March, 2018

Intrastat tresholds just got higher

The new exemption thresholds are as follows:

  • Arrivals: 430,000 BGN (circa € 220,000)
  • Dispatches 260,000 BGN (circa € 133,000)

The thresholds requiring detailed Intrastat reports including statistical information have also been updated as follows:

  • Arrivals for detailed Intrastat: 6,300,000 BGO (circa €3,222,000)
  • Dispatches for detailed Intrastat: 12,800,000 BGN (circa € 6,547,000)

Intrastat thresholds should be computed on the basis of a calendar year. If you have not exceeded the threshold between January and December, you must start your count from zero on the following year. Likewise, if a businesses exceeded the threshold in a given January to December period, it will be mandatory to keep submitting Intrastat returns until you have completed a calendar year below the threshold.

For example, if a company exceeds the Intrastat threshold on March 2018 due to transactions carried out during January to March 2018, this company will be required to submit Intrastat returns at least until December 2019, even if no transactions take place between March 2018 and December 2019.

When passing any of the thresholds requiring detailed Intrastat reports, you are required to include even more information about your transactions.
