all done, many thanks for your help.
I have applied for UK VAT as I thought I needed it for the EU VAT application, but it seems I do not need a UK VAT number.
The application is being processed and I apologise for wasting anyone's time, how can I cancel the application?
Thank you for the detailed reply, this is the conclusion I also found with my research. I hope this posts helps someone else in the same situation.
If a UK company uses a company based in the EU for IT services like software development where the customers are based globally including the EU and UK, how is the VAT handled in this case?
I am an online marketplace and from what I have researched and what my accountant told me, you need to pay VAT in the country you are selling to if it goes above the threshold. So if you sold to a business in Germany and these sales were above 10,000 euros you need to register for VAT in Germany and pay there. Since Brexit, it hasn't been easy to get a clear answer and I am still not sure 100%.
I would also talk with your accountant.
Sorry, if this is a little complex, I hope that someone can help.
I am a limited company selling digital goods online globally and only a small percentage in the UK, and the company is also exempt from UK VAT as the amount of UK sales is below the threshold.
The company also sells digital download products for vendors who are from the EU and one of the vendors is a German company that has sent an invoice with VAT declared on the sales, how should I deal with this?
Should they be sending me a reverse-charge VAT invoice and if so does that mean I am liable to pay the VAT?
