DIT Webinars: Post Transition E-Commerce


The MIA has forged close relationships with the Department for International Trade over many decades, especially with the work of Colin Holdsworth with the Trade Show Access Programme grants, which many exporting members have received.

We know that many UK music industry exporters are busy adjusting to the new requirements when trading with EU countries. DIT are presenting two very interesting Webinar’s relating to post transition e-commerce issues. The first event is about VAT changes for e-commerce. The second is about working with Amazon’s fulfilment centres across Europe.

Life after Brexit: VAT changes for e-commerce

This Webinar will cover the following topics:

– how UK online B2C businesses are trading with the EU after Brexit;

– the expansion of the EU ‘One Stop Shop’ regime to cover B2C online sales of goods and services to EU customers;

– the proposed single EU VAT return for e-commerce distance selling;

– the removal of Low Value Consignment Relief for low value imports into the EU;

– the impact of the new e-commerce rules on online marketplaces; and

– how the new EU rules will impact various e-commerce business models, e.g. will UK businesses be able to close their existing EU VAT registrations?

Who will benefit most from attending?

The update is ideal for CFOs, financial controllers, Heads of Tax, Tax/ VAT Managers and anyone who plays a fundamental role in their organisation for overseeing VAT compliance in the EU.
