The new Brexit rules took effect on January 1, 2021. What does this mean for businesses trading from the UK into Europe, and from worldwide into the UK?
Although many of the new VAT and customs rules were decided in advance of Brexit, there is still confusion among ecommerce sellers as to how to continue trading across the UK border, and continue providing a smooth experience for their customers.
Overview & Agenda
Join Avalara and ShipStation as they discuss the latest challenges that ecommerce sellers are facing post-Brexit in the areas of customs, VAT, delivery and fulfillment. These include:
- Avalara will talk about the new actions that need to be taken, such as new VAT registrations, EORI numbers, collecting import VAT and hiring fiscal representatives
- ShipStation will discuss problems that businesses are going through with shipping across the UK border (Customs, fulfilment, Delivery Duty Paid and returns)
- Avalara and ShipStation will have an open Q&A, so feel free to have your most challenging questions ready!
Don’t worry, if you can’t make it, we will be recording the session so please still submit your questions, and we will get through as many as we can!
