Brexit 2021: Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to register for UK VAT as a foreign business?
If you’re selling digital products or services to British customers (B2C), you must register for UK VAT as of 1 January 2021. There is no tax registration threshold for your business, so you must register immediately if you sell digital products to UK consumers. Check out this step-by-step guide on how to register.
My business only sells B2B in the UK. Do I need to register for UK VAT?
Remote sellers don’t need to register for UK VAT if they sell digital products only to businesses and/or professionals (100% B2B). If you think you fall in this category, we recommend you confirm your particular case with the HMRC or a professional tax advisor.
How do I register for UK VAT?
The good news is you can likely register online, and it’s not necessary to get an agent or representative to do it for you.
We put together this simple step-by-step guide to help you register for a UK VAT number if your company is based in the EU, the US, or any other country in the world.
How do I register for EU VAT?
If you sell in more than one EU country, you should register for the EU VAT MOSS. You can do this through whichever member state you’d like to serve as your “homebase” in the European Union (there are 27 options).
Tip: If your native language is English, we recommend you choose Ireland.
