3.VAT in the EU

 

 According to EU government's new policy on imported goods, from 1 July 2021, the VAT rules on cross-border business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce activities will change. The rationale for these changes is to overcome the barriers to cross-border online sales and address challenges arising from the VAT regimes for distance sales of goods and for the importation of low value consignments.

Please review below details before order on us and if you still have any question , please free feel to send emails to our customer service: [email protected] Thank you for your understanding.
