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 responsible for the VAT on certain transactions by their sellers.

The same reforms are happening in the European Union on 1 July 2021, introducing sweeping reforms to the VAT obligations of B2C ecommerce sellers and marketplaces.

Register now for immediate access to two on demand webinar recordings to learn how these changes will affect your business when:

  • Selling and shipping goods from outside the UK to EU consumers
  • Listing your goods on major marketplaces in the UK or EU, including fulfilment
  • Acting as a marketplace for sales to EU or UK buyers

In this set of two webinars we provide an overview of these major reforms, and how the new rules will affect sellers and marketplaces’ VAT, customs and tariff obligations, both in the UK and EU.
