The Decision determines the period and prescribes the conditions which serve as a standard for determining which indirect taxpayers will have the status of 'large indirect taxpayers'.

According to the Decision, for the period 2015-2017, taxpayers will be classified as large taxpayers if their total annual amount of VAT (sum of input and output VAT) is equal to or exceeds 1.5 mil BAM ($860,000). Furthermore, the compliance control of large VAT taxpayers will be carried out at the premises of the Director of Indirect Taxation.
