FINANCE VAT changes you need to know about


A new law, in force since 1 January, requires UK suppliers to Europe to produce a written statement to accompany the dispatch of goods to the EU. Amid post-General Election news and Brexit commentary, these changes may have slipped under the radar for many. Chartered Accountants Newby Castleman outlines the requirements readers may not be aware of.


Historically, goods dispatched to the EU have been listed on an EC sales form. HMRC has increasingly flagged instances of dispatches being missed off the list. While the first omission may just incur a warning, penalties are increasingly being enforced that could scupper the supplier’s zero rating. From the beginning of the year,


a requirement has been in place in the form of a written statement that must be produced within ten days following the month of supply, in cases where the buyer - or recipient - has arranged the transport of the goods. To be valid, the statement should include certain minimum information regarding the goods, the acquirer of the goods and the means and date of transport. In addition to the statement, the


submission of an accurate EC Sales List incorporating the intra EU supply in question has also been


made a requirement for zero rating that supply. Brent Goodwin (pictured), Newby


Castleman’s VAT Manager, said: “These changes may have passed


under the radar with everything happening in both the UK and wider world. It is important that businesses are aware that if either of the new requirements are not met in relation


to an intra EU supply of goods, then any zero rating in respect of those supplies becomes invalid and the supplier leaves themselves open to interest and penalties.”
