Bulgaria has incorporated into its VAT Act of 2006, the provisions on VAT, the directives created by the European Union, to which Bulgaria acceded in January 2007. In Bulgaria, the authority responsible for administering VAT is the National Revenue Agency (NRA) supervised by the Bulgarian Ministry Finance.

As with all EU countries, companies trading in Bulgaria and supplying taxable goods or services must comply with Bulgarian legislation. This includes the obligation to register as Bulgarian VAT, comply with VAT regulations, and complete regular Bulgarian VAT returns and other returns.

How can I register VAT in Bulgaria?

The application for VAT registration must be completed through the website of the public administration in Bulgaria (Национална агенция за приходите). Foreign taxpayers who do not have a permanent residence or permanent establishment in Bulgaria, receive a Bulgarian VAT number only if they apply for it separately and if they supply goods or services in Bulgaria. The VAT application form must include your reasons for registering for VAT. Under EU VAT directives, a local Bulgarian representative or tax agent is not required by a company resident in another EU Member State and such companies can register directly with the Bulgarian tax office. However, a tax representative who is jointly and severally liable for Bulgarian VAT is required by the Bulgarian Tax Office for non-EU companies. A tax representative is not required by non-EU companies that are based in a country that has a mutual assistance treaty with Bulgaria.
