UK brexit and trading with digital goods with UK.
Got this email ;(
I need less, not more administrative work...
One option would be to decline service to UK customers?
The UK transition period will end on 31 December 2020, and we are writing to tell you about changes to the UK VAT Mini One Stop Shop, and the actions that you need to take.
There will be new rules from 1 January 2021
The UK will no longer be a part of the VAT MOSS service. This means as an EU business that sells digital services to the UK, you won’t be able to use the MOSS portal to declare VAT due to the UK.
What you need to do
The last return you will be able to submit to the UK via MOSS is for Q4 2020 (the period ending 31 December 2020). On that return you must only include sales from 1 October 2020 until 11pm on 31 December 2020.
Any corrections to previously submitted returns for UK VAT must be made via your Member State of Identification’s (MSID) MOSS portal before 31 December 2021.
Declaring VAT on digital services made to UK consumers from 1 January 2021
You will need to register for UK VAT if you make supplies of digital services to UK consumers after the UK has left the EU. Further information on registering for VAT in the UK can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/vat-registration.
