Im woocommerce too so would be no good then
No, I have not tried it yet. They've been helpful via email, so contact them and ask re: Woocommerce.
Thanks, I did speak with them a while back and they were helpful but are waiting on Woocommerce to do the plugin development for integration.
My sales to Germany are now going through via eBay without a problem (IOSS paid via eBay and through my own Click & Collect account). All international sales outside of the EU are going direct from my own web site without difficulty. That includes Switzerlasnd, Australia, New Zealand, Napal, USA and Canada.
That's good to know! Anything to think about when setting this up on eBay?
There are no special rules apart from, I name the EU countries in the postal set up. Europe, European Union, Ireland, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Asia, Japan, Australia, Russian Federation.
My product has a unit cost of £23.99.
I subsidise the postal charge to EU ( I charge £6.95 for Royal Mail Tracked International.) and offer a discount on two or more. Buy 2 get 5% off, Buy 3 get 10% off, Buy 4 get 15% off. As I charge £6.95 regardless of where the order is sent, I take a bigger hit for countries further away. I do this as I am building sales to AUS and NZ.
So, a typical Invoice to Germany for two items would be, 2 X widgets, say £47.90, includes eBay added VAT rate at 7%. Subtotal: £47.98 Plus Postage (subsidised by my company, circa £2.00) £6.95 plus VAT (eBay collected) £3.69. Less Discount -£2.40. Total Charge to Customer £56.22
That seems like a good solution. Thank you so much for letting us know!
…the negative is of course the fact that you may not pick up VAT partner costs in the EU to administer IOSS but sales from EU customers are going via eBay and I am feathering their nest and not my own web site. As the product I sell is always the same I am thinking of investigating using ‘agents’ or ‘associates’ in the EU countries where my sales are strongest. Germany and Italy in my case. By ‘agent’ I mean, switched on individuals who want to make an extra Euro or two from home to end user selling. I need to understand how the mechanics of this would work bearing in mind the EU VAT shadow.
Has anyone had issues with customs charging the customers additional VAT when the VAT had already been paid?
We've been using IOSS successfully for weeks but now we are getting lots of problems with EU customs..
We've double checked everything but can't figure it out, you clearly see the VAT paid on invoices so... And it's not custom duties either since the order doesn't exceed 150euros.
Has anyone else been having problems?
A further, noncommital response from the Treasury via my MP:
The Government fully recognises the impact on businesses of the issue of
fiscal representatives in relation to the EU Import One Stop Shop (IOSS)
scheme. It is actively seeking the EU’s agreement that the condition should
not apply to the UK. This is based on the terms of the ‘Protocol on
Administrative Cooperation and Combatting Fraud in the Field of Value Added
Tax and on Mutual Assistance for the Recovery of Claims relating to Taxes in
Duties’, which is included within the Trade and Cooperation Agreement. The
UK continues to push the EU Commission to reach such an agreement with the
UK to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
