For retailers with a ship-to address in a non-E.U. country, VAT will be applied differently depending on whether the goods are shipped domestically, or internationally. Please see below to learn more about how we will manage domestic and international shipments.
For any products that brands send from within a specific European country to a retailer based in the same country, Go Wholesale will charge the retailer the standard VAT rate for that country at checkout for the transaction. This VAT amount will then be automatically remitted to the brand as part of their order payout. In the event that a retailer is purchasing from a non-VAT-registered brand, we will not charge the retailer any VAT on the transaction.
For any products that are shipped from a location outside the retailer’s country, VAT will not be charged at checkout.
If you are a VAT-registered retailer, you should be entitled to reclaim import VAT the same way you reclaim VAT for domestic orders, through your domestic VAT return. We recommend that you verify your input VAT recovery entitlement with a local tax specialist.
