Registration for VAT purposes

A taxpayer is a person who permanently or periodically independently conducts a business activity, regardless of the goals and the results of that activity.

Taxpayers for VAT can be legal or physical persons, as well as associations of persons who earn income within their business activity.

Compulsory registration for VAT

  • Taxpayers who in the preceding calendar year had a turnover higher than 1.000.000 denars are obliged for VAT registration.
  • Taxpayers who during the calendar year, achieve a total turnover over 1.000.000 denars, are obliged for registration for the purposes of the VAT.
  • Taxpayers which are beginning with carrying out of a commercial activity, if they predict that they will achieve turnover over 2.000.000 denars, are also obliged to be registered for VAT purposes.

Total turnover for VAT registration purposes represents a sum of the taxable turnover made in the previous calendar year, including the VAT that falls on it, except for the turnover which is tax-free without the right for deduction of the previous tax.

If the taxpayer performed its activity in only one part of the calendar year, the actual turnover is calculated at the level of the total turnover for the entire calendar year.
