What is the VAT One-Stop-Shop?

The Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS) is a simplified reporting model for non-EU suppliers when the sale of goods is made to an EU consumer. Suppliers can register for the IOSS when goods have a consignment value of less than €150. Where a UK business uses IOSS, VAT is not due at the point the goods enter the EU. VAT is due on the sale, which is declared and paid at the rate applicable in the EC member state where the consumer is based, via a monthly return.
