EU VAT Distance Selling Thresholds 2020

You are here:

To help reduce the administrative burden on companies, and to encourage them to start trading across Europe, there are national VAT registration thresholds set by each country.  If a foreign company is selling below these thresholds, it does not need to VAT register.  Once over these limits within the same calendar year, it must apply for a VAT number.
