VAT Threshold Limit 2019: Poland
As you might know, there are several reasons which require a proper VAT registration. That can be storing in the country, setting up a business or simply reaching the annual threhshold limit via distance selling.
You can sell from one country to others within Europe, but as soon as you reach the annual VAT threshold limit of the country you are selling to, a VAT registration in this country will be required.
What does that mean?
Exporting goods as an online seller to certain countries won’t lead to the necessity of a VAT registration as long as the annual VAT registration threshold isn’t reached. The turnover you make with selling goods from country 1 to country b is decisive.. As soon as the annual limit for sales to this country is reached, you need to get a VAT number in the country of import and also file returns, submit VAT reports, etc.
Let’s assume your are a seller who is based in Germany and who wants to sell to Poland. The German VAT number is all you need as long the Polish VAT threshold limit of about 37.000€ isn’t reached, so you annual sales to Poland do not exceed 37.000€ As soon as you reach this value, you need to register for VAT in Poland as well.

Further registrations will be required for each additional country in which you reach the annual threshold limit.
