Distance Selling Thresholds

For EU countries

EU Distance Selling

The EU VAT distance selling rules are a set of EU VAT rules that affect anyone selling goods online to private consumers throughout the European Union. 

These 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

We can check if you have reached a Distance Selling Threshold – schedule a call with our team today to find out if you need to VAT register in another country.
