VAT issues for Distance sellers and Online Market Places operating in the UK

Whether or not your business is VAT registered in the UK you need to be aware of the VAT rules that will affect your sales of goods to private consumers across the EU.

The session begins with a short introduction on how UK VAT works before building to the particular VAT rules that, from the 1st January, affect UK businesses selling goods to consumers across the EU. It also looks ahead to the new Ecommerce Rules coming in from the 1st July 2021 in EU under the planned Import One Stop Shop (IOSS) regime which will also affect UK businesses.
