Re: Parts from the UK

My crystal ball is no better than yours, at a guess I'd expect buying from Germany to save a fiver will be a thing of the past, but where it's previously been possible to save £10's or £100's it'll still be worth it, though not as much as previously. You might also ask why in a free market it's bee...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

... Excellent investigation :D ....a pity the bbc didn't do some. You mean like this one from January 2018: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/business-42595875 That's referring to VAT-registered businesses importing goods from the EU to be sold on. It's nothing to do with the topic of this thread. Or t...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

Reading around a bit, one problem seems to be for small scale suppliers who use one of the services, such as Shopify, that give you a ready made online store & payment. It seems that they don't do the 3rd country tax stuff unless you are on a package that costs a 4 figure sum. That may be where...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

So, setting aside the bizarre involvement of William Shatner and the fact the Mr Dutch Bike Bits seems to have seriously misunderstood/misrepresented the changed VAT regulations - what is your opinion on why so many other EU companies seem to have suspended delivery to the UK as we start 2021? I th...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

This is not true though. There is no such fee. Anyone claiming that the government charges a fee for VAT registration is a scammer. ... So this from the Dutch Bike Bits is incorrect? Ok it doesn't explicitly say the fee is to register for VAT, but it says they will be charged by HMRC to collect the...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

Ah interesting. I notice there is a turnover threshold below which complying with their scheme is not necessary though. Also no mention of a charge just to register with the tax authority as an overseas seller? You wouldn't be charged just to register, but of course there will be in the real world ...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

See below the text I received from the Dutch company: It's unlikely we will be able to ship books to the UK after 1st of January. Unlike other countries outside the EU, the UK requires our company to register for the British VAT in order to be able to ship goods from a commercial organisation. I'm ...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

What was (and is) the eligibility for the Non-Union VAT MOSS? MOSS is for paying VAT on sales into the EU, previously this would be digital services as from July it would also be physical goods. So a Chinese company charging for a digital service for someone in the EU can use MOSS. It cannot and ha...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

These are in fact EU rules that the UK has chosen to implement before the EU. That sounds like it has simply been 'inherited' by the current government who haven't (yet?) modified it?... I therefore suggest waiting and seeing (and contacting mp etc,) .... I'm not sure about that. As mentioned befor...

Surely some posters should wait until they have more complete information before making some of the political comments...? This thread is about new barriers following the UK's political decisions.
