  • Based in UK, USA Client wants to Collect from our China Supplier

    Hi All As the title says, the company I work for is based in the UK. We sell worldwide. One of our customers (in America) requires some items urgently which we don't have stock of. We will be placing an order with our supplier in China however our American Customer would like to collect them direct from our supplier in China. From a paper work side of things, there's not much I need to do as the customer will be arranging all that, we'll sell it to them on an Ex-Works basis, however, what are the VAT and Duty implications? We would usually pay VAT and Duty when these are imported to the UK but we're not importing them this time. Any advice would be appreciated.
