The idea from the motives of the bill is that if in the same site there are several legal entities with which a business carries out its activity, its turnover should be summed so that when a person from this business realizes $ 20 thousand turnover, and the other $ 30 thousand, for both to arise the mandatory VAT registration.

Without a declaration, there is no way for the municipality or the local revenue administration to find out about the respective acquisition.
