Ministry of Finance raises VAT registration threshold to acknowledge record inflation
Sweden’s Ministry of Finance has proposed raising the annual sales threshold for VAT registration from SEK 80,000 to SEK 120,000 (approximately €10,100). The threshold was last raised in 2024.
This new threshold will apply from 1 January 2025. It is subject to publication in the 2024 budget, and approval by Parliament.
