Malta raises VAT registration threshold to €35,000 May 2021

Malta has proposed in its 2021 budget raising its Value Added Tax registration threshold for the supply of goods to €35,000 per annum. All other supplies will be €30,000. If adopted, the increased threshold will apply until 31 December 2024.

The European Commission has already indicated its provisional approval. In addition, the amendments provide a possibility to convert a standard VAT registration to registration as a small undertaking if the taxable person submits a request to the Commissioner for Revenue within 6 months from the date of standard VAT registration or before the due date of the first VAT return (whichever is the latest). The Commissioner for Revenue may accept this request if the person qualifies as a small undertaking. The Commissioner may impose other conditions and limitations which will be determined at the time when the request is made.
