The regulations surrounding online trading and services cover a vast range of different business types, specialising in online and distance goods or services. Online businesses must adhere to reporting rules and VAT rules when trading in physical goods or digital services in EU countries. With rules changing from country to country, outside of the EU, it is essential that a business knows the regulations of the country they are trading with.
There are a number of requirements for businesses in terms of VAT for online trading and services. The correct rate must be adhered to, for distance selling, and VAT may need to be registered in another country if the threshold for sales is exceeded.
