So, do we stop selling to the UK now?

As of 1 Jan 2021, “online marketplaces” are required to collect Value Added Tax (VAT) for goods sold to UK customers. As far as I can tell, Tindie meets the definition of “online marketplace”.

Is Tindie going to register for collecting UK VAT? Or should we stop selling to the UK?

We haven’t registered yet, but we are working with our tax advisor to ensure that we meet local requirements.

Please note that on Jan 1st, 2021, the UK will be removed from the EU group in our shipping rates and moved into non-EU Europe group. If you wish to have a specific UK rate, you will need to set one up before then.

Unfortunately, we are still sorting this out.

In the meantime, I have put a notice on my store that orders to the UK must either be a minimum of £135 or include recipient’s VAT number.
