Online Retail

Retail businesses¬†(‘B2C’) find themselves at the sharp end of the VAT collection system. Unlike others in the supply chain, the VAT they levy is generally irrecoverable by their customers.¬† Ensuring that precisely the right amount is charged and collected on a particular sale is therefore critical, as errors can result in inappropriate pricing or eroded margins.

B2C businesses that trade online face further challenges. Internet trading enhances geographical reach leading to cross border VAT compliance obligations; triggering a requirement to register for VAT in another EU member state under the distance selling rules is likely to result in a different rate of VAT becoming due on your products.

With the assistance of an extensive network of European VAT contacts, we help a number of online retail businesses remain VAT compliant and efficient.

Areas where we can add value include;

  • B2C EU Sales (Distance Selling)
  • Exports
  • Product Liability
  • Postal Fulfilment
  • Carriage
  • Business Promotion Schemes
  • Order Duplication and Tax Points
  • Import Procedures

I have worked with Mark for a number of years and he has helped us succeed in a number of VAT claims. His experience has proved invaluable and I will certainly use him again should the need arise.
