Who cannot register their business for VAT?
An entity cannot register for VAT if it does not meet the definition of a business stated by HMRC (please see the gov.uk website for more information). A business is also prohibited from registering if the business tends to sell goods or services that are exempt from VAT (i.e. insurance, education).
What is distance selling?
Distance selling occurs when a VAT-registered business in one EU country supplies and delivers goods to a customer in another EU country who isn’t registered for VAT. You are distance selling into the UK if:
- You’re outside the UK but in another EU country
- You sell goods to customers in the UK who aren’t VAT-registered
- You deliver the goods or arrange for their delivery
Customers who aren’t VAT-registered include:
- Private individuals
- Some small businesses
- Businesses that can’t register for VAT because their activities are exempt
- Public bodies
Distance selling only involves goods, not services. It only takes place when a business registered for VAT in one EU country sells and delivers goods to someone in another EU country who isn’t, and doesn’t have to be, registered for VAT.
