BULSTAT number - how do I find it?

No, really... it does! But does it matter more in Bulgaria than at home? NO ADVERTISING - financial services adverts belong in our classifieds section. Get-rich-quick schemes belong in the trash. (Property related issues should go in the Housing/Property forum.)

BULSTAT number - how do I find it?

This may sound a bit silly, but do you know your company name and registered address? If so, the registry agency should be able to tell you your bulstat number. Do you have any copies ofincoming invoices? Your Bulstat number should have been quoted on those too.

Did you make out a PoA for the purchase, and do you have a copy, as the Bulstat should be quoted on there as well.

Good luck

Bulstat number

Postby daichip » Mon 10 Dec 2007 22:46 GMT

Thank you Mr Kriss, I looked through the documents I received from the agents when I purchased the house and found it. Im lucky I have been learning Bulgarian as I found it amongst the Bulgarian copy.

One last thing... will it be okay to give this number to an accountancy company to enable them to seek information regarding my tax affairs?

regards

daichip,

do you mean to give them the Bulstat card, or just the Bulstat number?
When you registered the company, you should have received a Bulstat card - it is the card which identifies your company before banks, National Revenue Agency and other state authorities.

What do you mean by "to seek information regarding my tax affairs"? Is this accountancy company a Bulgarian one?

BULSTAT NUMBER

Postby daichip » Tue 11 Dec 2007 20:43 GMT

Hi Milen thank you for the reply.

When we purchased the property we were no issued a BULSTAT card. Having looked through our documents I managed to find the BULSTAT number which was on a document written in Bulgarian, this is the only documentation we have which has this number on it.

The 'accountancy company' I have approached to take control of my end of the year tax, I believe is bulgrian, however they have a UK web site, but it is not up and running. I have asked them for their contact details in Bulgaria ie address, fax, web address etc etc, however they have not given it to me. At the moment they want my BULSTAT number so they can check to see what my taxes are in order for them to proceed.?!! Hope this makes a bit more sense than my last email.

Hello daichip,

in my opinion you should check the accountancy company before you authorize it to submit your company's annual tax statement to the National Revenue Agency.

The Bulstat number is a public number. Anyone could find it by only knowing your company's name. There are digitial databases available in Bulgaria.

My advice is to find a trustful accountancy company and meet it's representative. This will assure you that you won't be taken advantage of. The deadline for submiting anual tax statements is March 2008.

One more thing about the Bulstat. I presume that you have found the number written on the Temporary Bulstat certificate. It is a sheet of paper issued by the Registry Agency. The certificate is valid one month after its issuance. After the validity period expires you should go the the Registry Agency and return the certificate back. They will give you a plastic card which is a permanent replacement for the temporary certificate. This should be done no more than 5 days after the certificate expires. If you delay your company actions are subject to a fine: upto 1,000 Levs (approx. EUR 500).
