G. VAT on sales to someone who isn't VAT registered in another EU country
- If USBNow supply goods to a customer in another EU country who isn't registered for VAT in that country, and we are responsible for delivery - that is, they don't collect them - then this is called a 'distance sale'. The most common examples are mail order or Internet sales to private individuals in another EU country.
USBNow may therefore have to account for UK VAT. You may also have to account for acquisition VAT in that country, and so have to be registered there.
- If USBNow supply excise goods (goods on which excise duty is payable, such as alcohol or tobacco) to someone who isn't registered for VAT in another EU country, the VAT treatment depends on whether they are delivered by you or collected by your customer.
If USBNow deliver the goods (or arrange for them to be delivered), they are treated as distance sales in the country to which they are delivered.
