    Overview of The Legal Acts That Entered into Force On 1 July 2019

    The Estonian Chamber of Commerce has prepared an overview of the most important amendments of the law that entered into force on 1 July 2019. The most significant change for entrepreneurs is the fact that from now on invoices can be sent to the public sector only as e-invoices. In total there were more than 25 legal acts that entered into force from the beginning of July.

    Only e-invoices can be sent to the public sector from now on
    On 1 July, amendment of the Accounting Act entered into force. According to the amendment companies and other legal entities can send invoices only as e-invoices to the public sector. Invoices sent on paper or electronically are no longer accepted.

    The public sector unit to whom the e-invoices must be sent from 1 July is the state and state authority, local municipality unit and authority of a local municipality unit, another public legal entity and foundations, non-profit organizations and companies under the direct or indirect control of all of the above.

    Alcohol excise duty to decrease by 25 percent
    From 1 July, the excise duty on beer, cider, and light alcohol was decreased by 25 percent. As a result, the excise duty sum paid on 0.5 l beer (5% vol) will decrease by €0.1 and for a litre of vodka by €2.51. The main aim of the amendment was to decrease border trade on the southern border.

    Period of limitation on certain claims to be extended
    The limitation period for the claims ordered to be paid based on civil actions submitted within the framework of claims arising for illegal causing of damages and criminal proceedings will be extended from the current ten years to 20 years. A longer limitation period is applicable, for example for claims arising from the liability of a manufacturer, owner of a hazardous building or item. The aim of the amendment is to strengthen the rights of creditors.

    A longer limitation period is applicable for rulings, in-court settlements or other enforcement documents that entered into force from 1 July 2019.

    The limitation period for civil claims, such as claim for payment of the purchase price arising from a sales contract or a claim arising from a loan agreement is still ten years.
