The changes that will be enforced after 01.10.2023 are the following:

1. Bank accounts of National Revenue Agency will be serviced by the Bulgarian National Bank – therefore it is necessary to inform yourself about the new account numbers of the National Revenue Agency, to which the relevant obligations are paid.

The possibility for completing the "Code for type of payment" requisite is keeped, but only to the accounts with the identifier "84" in the 13th and 14th positions of the  IBAN account of budget organizations.
