Notice to retailers exporting to France

Some important changes will be coming into effect from 1 January 2022 in the French VAT regime which will affect companies exporting goods from the UK to France. From 1 January 2022 VAT imports in France will no longer be collected by customs authorities but rather will be automatically reverse-charged on the importer's French VAT returns. This means it will not be possible to import goods into France without a France VAT number as all companies acting as importers of record in France will need to have a valid French VAT number and file VAT declarations. Foreign companies can register for VAT in France even if they are not established in France or elsewhere in the EU.

DIT France will be partnering with RM Boulanger, a company specialised in cross-border formalities and tax matters, for a webinar on these changes on the 16 December at 3pm. You can find more information and register for the webinar by clicking on the button below.
