VAT & GST for eCommerce business

eCommerce sales of goods and services are rapidly increasing globally. The large marketplaces take away the borders and enable sellers to reach customers everywhere. Examples of clients that we support are:

  • Asian online businesses selling goods into the EU and surrounding markets (e.g. Switzerland and Norway) either directly or via local marketplace (e.g. Amazon FBA)
  • European online businesses selling goods into the Asia Pacific with a focus on the Chinese market reached via local marketplaces (e.g. T-Mall/Alibaba)

 

GST for eCommerce sellers

If you are an individual eCommerce seller with no support from an online marketplace it can be difficult and time-consuming to navigate through all the International VAT intricacies. The complexity of each country’s unique tax system and the ever changing tax environment can be hard to handle. Global VAT compliance is here to assign its dedicated experts in charge of your VAT compliance so that you can focus in your expanding business.
