In response to numerous enquiries from East Midlands businesses regarding this EU VAT eCommerce package coming into effect from 1st July, DIT East Midlands and EU VAT specialist Ellen Main-Jeffrey from JustVAT will be on hand to offer insight and answer your questions.

About this webinar

The EU has been looking at ways to streamline VAT accounting for both EU VAT registered businesses and non-EU businesses selling into the EU and make it easier for individual sellers to report VAT.

As such, from 1st July 2021, the EU VAT eCommerce Package will launch. This means that B2C eCommerce sellers and eMarketplaces will face new VAT obligation reforms initiated by the 27 member states of the European Union.

The primary changes for B2C sellers from 1st July are:

  1. Simplified OSS (One Stop Shop) VAT return for EU VAT registered businesses selling cross-border within the EU

  2. Ending of the low-value import VAT exemption and the new IOSS (Import One Stop Shop) for non-EU businesses selling into the EU

  3. New rules for e-commerce whereby eMarketplaces will in some cases become the deemed VAT supplier and responsible for charging and collecting VAT on deemed supplier transactions


We will also look at VAT obligations using Amazon’s Pan-EU FBA and deferred VAT accounts for the EU.
