eBay & VAT


DATE: Please note that the below changes took effect on the 1st August 2017.

EVENT: eBay has restructured which means that UK customers no longer contract with eBay Europe but with eBay UK.

WHAT THIS MEANS: If you are an overseas trader in the UK you will be required to register and account for VAT in the UK. If the overseas trader does not comply they will be given 30 days to do so.

WHY: This is because of the measures introduced by the Chancellor last year aimed at tackling the VAT evasion by overseas traders that sell goods via online marketplaces in the UK.
