VAT - to Europe - does it still apply?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Since the 1st of January, when I place an order for delivery to France, I have found some shops no longer include VAT while others still do. As they are pre-orders, I suspect that they will have time to sort out the rules and charge me correctly.

 

But should they still charge VAT sending to the EU?

(I see shops outside the UK selling into it, have to register for a UK VAT number, but not sure what happens in the reverse).

Just be aware that it will now be like ordering from the US, where you can get a "surprise" bill for clearing your item through customs from the shipping company - there are already media stories about customers shocked that they now have to pay extra fees.
