Economy

How VAT is affected by purchases and sales: In short, after 31 December 2020, the United Kingdom will be considered a country outside the EU, and trade will be classified as export or import.

Sales of goods to the United Kingdom that are currently reported as EU sales must be reported as exports after the transition period. If you instead acquire goods, you will need to report import VAT.
