star this property answer text <p>HM Revenue &amp; Customs (HMRC) have increased their engagement with China Customs through the Fiscal Crime Liaison Officer in Beijing. The engagement is designed to tackle undervaluation fraud, including online VAT fraud, with the help of the Chinese authorities. This has included a memorandum of understanding, set up in 2018, leading to a joint working group and a series of commodity-focused exercises.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, HMRC’s primary focus in tackling the VAT issue has been with the online marketplaces through which those sellers operate, as this has proven to be an effective way of improving their compliance. The Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme supports this compliance activity by regulating the sites where overseas sellers store imported goods prior to their sale.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has led the way in tackling this complex and international problem. A package of measures was announced at Budget 2016 to tackle abuse by overseas businesses selling goods to UK customers through online marketplaces. This included holding online marketplaces jointly liable for the future unpaid VAT of non-compliant overseas businesses and the introduction of the Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme which went live in April 2019. At Budget 2017 the Government strengthened the joint and several liability rules for online marketplaces to include UK businesses, where they either knew or should have known that an overseas business should have been registered for VAT and required them to display a valid VAT number where provided with one. Taken together, these measures are expected to deliver just under £1bn by 2023.</p> more like this
