Doubling of the registration threshold to lift thousands of business out of the VAT net
The Czechia government has put forward a Bill to double the VAT registration threshold from CZK 1 million to CZK 2 million (about €85,000) per annum. The Czech Republic was been given permission by the European Commission (and European Council) to raise its VAT registration threshold.
The Bill schedules the rise for 1 January 2023.
This is a short-term derogation from the EU VAT rules, and is provided until 31 December 2024. This date was picked to coincide with the introduction of the new Small Enterprise VAT registration threshold reforms, which come into effect on 1 January 2025. At that point, Czechia may apply for an extension which is likely to be granted.
This VAT registration threshold does not apply to non-resident businesses which must register immediately if providing certain taxable supplies – imports, domestic sales or live events admissions etc.
