I have a client who buys and sells over Amazon & Ebay. In the past year his business has grown and he has sold to France, Germany and Spain via Amazon.
His European sales are also purchased in france and delivery takes place there. The goods are not sent to him in the UK.
Before the European sales, his turnover was approx £70,000 but his european turnover takes him to £96,000 and over the UK VAt registration threshold.
My query is
1 Do the European sales count for UK threshold
2 He has no way of knowing if his european sales are to businesses or to individuals, so does he have to be EU registered?
Any help on this situation will be great.
PS did contact HMRC for clarity and still awaiting
