The EU VAT Distance Selling Rules
Did you know any sales you make online to local and other EU private consumers are governed by what’s known as the EU VAT distance selling rules. The term ‘distance selling’ in the VAT world don’t relate to any sales going cross-border, they are actually a set of EU VAT rules that affect anyone selling goods online throughout the European Union.
The rules state that you charge local VAT until you exceed set thresholds. Once a distance selling threshold is exceeded in any one calendar year, you will need a VAT registration in that EU country. The current set thresholds are:
Euros 35,000 (or local currency equivalent) in every EU country, except:
Euros 100,000 (or equivalent) in Germany, Netherlands and Luxembourg;
GBP 70,000 in the UK.
