No More Threshold Selling into the UK from Dec 1, 2012
There will no longer be a threshold for VAT registration when selling goods and products into the United Kingdom from December 1, 2012 for non-UK companies. Consequently all North American companies that import goods into the United Kingdom, or purchase from any UK vendors and sell on after December 1, 2012 are required to register for VAT. This means they have to register for VAT with the UK tax authorities, and charge 20% VAT to the UK customers. At the same time, they can deduct the VAT that has been paid to customs upon import, or to the UK vendors. For further details, please visit HM Revenue & Customs.
