An international group with companies in the US and EU wants to register for VAT in the UK. They will ship from multiple locations abroad to customers in the UK. Can these imports be handled by 1 registered VAT company? Or does each shipper need a separate VAT registration?

If the business is shipping goods in to the UK over the value of £135 and the business is the importer of record then there will be a requirement to register for VAT specifically in the UK as a supply of goods will be taking place in the UK.
If the goods are under a value of £135 please see the guidance below:
