Details

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, there will be changes to the rules for reporting and paying import VAT for sellers outside the UK.

This toolkit provides an overview of the changes, and includes resources to share with your members, clients or customers to help them get ready for the changes. The materials in this toolkit have been shared directly with a wide group of stakeholders, and are published here for information and for further use by stakeholders.
