Want to learn more about EU VAT for ecommerce? Here's what you need to know.

What is VAT?

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.

What makes a sale a taxable supply then?

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).

Who has to register for VAT?

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.

When do I register for EU VAT if I am a UK seller?

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).

When do I register if I am a non-UK seller?

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.

I sell digital services - do I need to register for EU VAT?

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.

How much does it cost?

This varies by country but the typical registration fee is c. €350 and each filing costs c. €150.

How frequently do I have to file?

This varies by country and in some countries it also varies by revenue, but most commonly it is monthly or quarterly.
