So a deal is done etc; not looking to get into the pros and cons of the politics but just talk about what we think this means for gear buyers across Europe who have liked buying from certain good UK online stores …
My understanding, which may be wrong, is we might see ‘XYZ online UK’ store soon advertising their goods priced with and without UK VAT, so an EU buyer can order it and then pay the EU VAT at the point of import?
(Assuming that the item is sufficiently made in the UK to the extent required for the new arrangement).
I’m hoping it is fairly straightforward. I have put a lot of custom to certain good UK retailers over the years who have been excellent in their speed and after service; that I’d hope to continue.
