Post-Brexit VAT and customs changes
Brexit has a significant impact on VAT and customs processes for any entity, including charities, that moves goods between the UK and EU, between GB and Northern Ireland, and any entity buying goods from EU suppliers or selling goods to EU consumers.
Charities sending or receiving physical goods to /from the EU are not exempt from having to deal with new export and import processes, and the increased use of the internet for sales and events means that you need to be aware of potential VAT registration obligations in the EU. It is particularly important for charities to be aware of the import VAT and duty reliefs available.
Our VAT consultancy charity experts can help you make sense of these changes and advise on new VAT obligations, including support with EU and international VAT registration and compliance if necessary. Additionally, you can download our guide to UK VAT and customs from 1 January 2021, which covers the headline VAT and customs changes you need to be aware of.
