Quarterly VAT calculations report
As of 1 January 2017, on a quarterly basis the figures for calculating the periodical VAT settlements – periodical VAT calculations as well as VAT calculations showing a VAT credit – have to be reported and submitted electronically. The deadline for filing will be the end of the second month following the each calender quarter (e.g., 31 May 2017 for the first quarter of 2017).
