Lithuania raises VAT registration threshold

Increase in resident VAT registration threshold for intra-community acquisitions of goods

Lithuania is to increase the VAT registration threshold for resident businesses who are only acquiring goods from other member states under the reverse charge from €14,000 to €30,000. This will come into effect from 1 January 2023.

Other trading activities will still be subject to the VAT registration threshold of €40,000.  Non-residents have no VAT registration threshold and must register immediately if providing qualifying taxable supplies.

The increase in the threshold is in recognition of the recent sharp rise in inflation, and the aim to lower the administrative burden on small business. The trade in excise goods or new vehicles are excluded.

Read our Lithuanian VAT guide for more background on the local rules.
