International e-commerce becomes easier with simplified VAT payment within the EU

Updated: Apr 15

On July 1st, 2021, the international VAT payment on business to consumer sales can be paid in your home country. The current local thresholds of export of goods via distance sales (e-commerce) will be replaced with an EU wide threshold of 10.000 EUR.

Currently, different member states have different thresholds for export (which vary from 25.000-100.000 EUR) and you need to report and pay VAT in each country you export to. These thresholds will be replaced with a combined threshold of 10.000 EUR for your total business to consumer export.
