Estonia | To raise domestic VAT registration threshold

At the request of the Estonian government, the European Commission is proposing to give Estonia authorisation to apply a higher VAT registration threshold for local small business.

The rise is expected to come into effect from the 1 January 2018 and will mean VAT registration is not required for businesses with a turnover of €40,000 or less.  This represents an increase in the threshold from the current rate of €16,000.
