CROSS-BORDER VAT

As is the case across most of Europe, the UK applies Value Added Tax (VAT) on the majority of business-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions.

However, VAT is charged and collected differently from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

If you are not aware of the individual rules and regulations of the countries you are trading in, you should seek expert advice.
