What’s happening in the ecommerce VAT overhaul?
The UK’s HMRC is overhauling the rules of VAT for ecommerce from 1 January 2021. This is at the same time as the end of the Brexit transition period, which brings separate VAT and customs changes. The new UK ecommerce reforms puts new VAT calculation and collections obligations on UK and overseas sellers. It also makes online marketplaces (‘OMP’) responsible for the VAT on certain transactions by their sellers.
To follow, on 1 July 2021, the member states of the European Union (EU) will introduce sweeping reforms to the VAT obligations of B2C ecommerce sellers and marketplaces.
How ecommerce VAT will impact your marketplace business?
