VAT Registration and Returns Service
VAT obligations, when trading across international borders, can be a costly headache to e-retailers. We work with international companies, helping them register for VAT and navigate the regulations in EU countries.
UK VAT for Overseas Sellers
If you sell goods stored in the UK and don’t have a business here, you’re classed as an overseas seller and need to register for VAT. Recently, HMRC, the UK’s tax authority, has been clamping down on overseas sellers who aren’t registered for or paying VAT, demanding historical missed payments and in some cases stopped them trading altogether. Our team of VAT Specialists are up to date on all the latest legislation and are able to help you register for and keep up to date with VAT.
VAT Registration Service
Each EU country has a different registration process, which for the uninitiated, can be complex and confusing. Our VAT Registration Service takes the hassle away from you. Let us know which countries you want to sell into, and we’ll take care of it on your behalf.
VAT Returns Service
Once registered for VAT, you’ll be required to provide regular returns. We collate all of the information needed from you, and submit it on your behalf in the relevant local language.
European governments require an Instrastat, which is a statistical return, detailing the movement of goods between EU countries. They only want this information when sales reach or exceed the set Intrastat reporting thresholds. We can help you meet your legal obligations in this respect.
Following customs processes, completing the correct forms and paying the right amount of money can be a barrier to doing business in the EU. We provide complete customs management for our e-retail customers, making it simpler for you to do business in the EU.Customs Requirements
