Bulgaria hikes Intrastat thresholds 2022

Many businesses taken out of the intra-community reporting requirement

Bulgaria has significantly raised the annual reporting thresholds for Intrastat for 2022. Intrastat is EU-wide (usually) monthly reporting regime for businesses to report the movement of goods between EU states. It is split between Arrivals (goods coming into Bulgaria from another EU state, and Dispatches (goods leaving Bulgaria for another EU state). It enables member states to track the movement of goods within the EU Single Market to understand economic trends and also to detect VAT fraud.
