If you store goods in the EU or have exceeded a European country's distance selling thresholds you are likely to need to EU VAT services. EU VAT requires registering and filing in each EU state but but with the right partner this process can be time and cost effective.
Whether you are a UK seller storing goods in the EU, and Amazon seller going Pan-European, or a dropshipper reducing delivery times by using EU suppliers, we have you covered. We can help get your registrations in place and automate the submission of all of your EU returns.
EASILY COMPLY WITH EU VAT REGULATION
“EU VAT is handled per country and is only available in the local language. With the right solution in place, not only is this not a problem, but it can be done cost-effectively and with minimal impact on your time.”
EU VAT is done per country. We work alongside the major EU VAT houses to ensure your UK business complies with EU VAT rules.
Having a single VAT-house handling all of your EU VAT means that you can be efficient in providing the information required to get you set up.
For Amazon and Shopify sellers you can achieve full automation. For others simply upload a single export file.
VAT (Value Added Tax) is a type of Sales Tax that is charged by VAT registered entities on certain qualifying sales they make. Such a sale is considered a taxable supply in the EU.
Any sale where the place of supply is considered the EU. So for physical goods, this means if the goods were sold from a warehouse or fulfilment centre in the EU (or a digital service sold to an EU customer).
Any company that makes EU taxable supplies has to register as soon as they exceed any of several thresholds that can apply. These thresholds depend on 1. where your business is based and 2. where your goods are supplied from.
If you are a UK seller, you have to register if you store goods in an EU country or if you have exceeded the distance selling thresholds for one of the EU countries (€35,000 for most, some are €100,000).
If you are storing goods in the EU and this is not the country where your business is established, you must register straight away. If you are storing and shipping goods from another EU country in which you are VAT registered, you must register if the sales exceed the distance selling threshold for the country in which your customer is based.
There is a special scheme for digital services that simplifies VAT for sellers of digital services, called the VAT MOSS Scheme. In this scenario, we can handle your submissions for you and you will not need to engage a EU VAT house.
This varies by country but the typical registration fee is c. €350 and each filing costs c. €150.
This varies by country and in some countries it also varies by revenue, but most commonly it is monthly or quarterly.
