08.06.2021 Deployment of updated version of the Customs Import Information System (CIIS) in relation to the new VAT package for e-commerce on 01.07.2021
Deployment of updated version of the Customs Import Information System (CIIS) of the National Customs Agency is planned on 01.07.2021, which derives from entering in force of new rules for e-commerce. From 01.07.2021 the VAT exemption threshold of 10/22 EUR is removed (for Bulgaria it is 30 BGN) as a result of which all goods imported in the EU will be subject to VAT irrespective of their value.
Along with the removal of the exemption from VAT for low-value goods, two simplifications are introduced for collection of VAT at imports of shipments of own value not exceeding 150 EUR:
1) Special regime for distance selling of goods imported from third territories or territories (Scheme of import one stop shop –IOSS), laid down in Title XII, Chapter 6, Section 4 of Council Directive 2006/112/ЕC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax, (the VAT Directive), amended with Directive (ЕU) 2017/2455 and Directive (ЕU) 2019/1995; or
2) Special regime for declaration and deferred payment of import tax laid down in Title XII, Chapter 7 of the VAT Directive.
