For any person that is registered for VAT purposes in your country, there will be an obligation to register as a VAT person on or after the date on which such person’s taxable supplies exceed €40,000. This applies from the first day of the calendar year.
A person needs to apply for VAT registration with the Estonian Tax and Customs Board within 3 working days of the date on which they arise.
