Question for Treasury

UIN 7653, tabled on 24 January 2020

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the number of businesses that make digital sales in the EU that will be required to register for VAT in multiple EU countries after the MOSS system is ended on 1 February 2020.

There are approximately 2,000 UK businesses registered for the VAT MOSS system. Businesses will be able to continue to use the system for sales made during the Implementation Period. Businesses can then choose to register for the non-Union scheme in any EU country and continue to use VAT MOSS. They will not have to register in each EU country unless they choose to do so.
