VAT number required for UK orders
Effective Jan 1, 2021, value added tax (VAT) must be collected for all goods entering the United Kingdom (UK). Previously, the UK collected the VAT directly from buyers upon receipt of the package in the UK; now it must be collected at the time of sale.
Atomic Avenue will calculate the VAT rate and collect it from UK buyers -- this amount will be disbursed to the seller. The seller is responsible for having a VAT number for the UK, including the VAT and number on the customs form, and making quarterly payments and reports to the UK.
