New year, new rules

Dealing with non-business customers in other countries changes on 1st January 2015. “Non-business” includes private individuals and also certain charities and public bodies, amongst others.

From then when services are supplied to a non-business customer in another country, VAT is charged according to the rules and tax laws where the customer belongs. For example if a UK business supplies services to a non-business customer in France, the UK business must charge ‘VAT’ at French rates. This ‘VAT’ is payable to the French authorities.

Our customers on our subscription service will automatically be updated as more information becomes available. If you would like more information about these changes please contact us.
