UK businesses cannot be transferred to the EU’s ‘Non-Union’ scheme automatically but the Government has written to all current users of UK VAT MOSS advising them of their options if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. This information was also included as part of the EU Exit guidance to businesses published on gov.uk. If the UK leaves with a deal then we will enter an implementation period. During the implementation period, businesses can continue to use the UK VAT MOSS system as they do currently.</p> more like this
