The Minister of Finance has adopted the Rulebook on Value Added Tax, whose implementation will commence on July 1, 2021.
From the financial reports prepared for 2021, the Rulebook is applied by all legal entities and entrepreneurs who have the obligation to apply double-entry accounting, except for legal entities which, by definition from the Law, are classified as large (banks, etc.) and other legal entities. The Rulebook is also applied by other legal entities, which decide to evaluate positions in the financial statements in accordance with IAS / IFRS or IFRS for SMEs. Another legal entity, by its general act (in practice it is usually the Rulebook on Accounting and Accounting Policies) regulates the manner in which it will perform the recognition, valuation of presentation and disclosure of positions in the financial statements. Transferring from old accounts to new ones should be done no later than December 31, 2021. We recommend to do so as early as the beginning of 2021 – to provide data for compiling financial statements for 2021.
Government session held on April 1, 2021, the Decree on determining the activities where there is no obligation to record retail trade through an electronic fiscal device was passed. Starting from the technical and functional characteristics of electronic fiscal devices and the specifics of performing these activities, certain activities have been determined that are exempted from the obligation to record through an electronic fiscal device. The new model of fiscalization has expanded the circle of taxpayers and envisages more comprehensive fiscalization. The decree was published in the Official Gazette of the RS, number 32/2021 from April 2, 2021, and it is applicable from January 1, 2022. On the day of the beginning of the application of the Decree, the (old) Decree on determining the activity in the performance of which there is no obligation to record the retail trade through the fiscal cash register ceases to be valid.
