Hello David1601957!

  1. From the Shopify admin, go to Settings > Taxes.
  2. In the Tax regions section, beside United Kingdom, click Set up.
  3. In the VAT collection section, click Collect VAT.
  4. Select a country in which you are registered.
  5. In VAT number, enter your VAT number. If you have applied for a VAT number but don't yet have one, then leave this field blank. You can update it when you receive your number.
  6. Click Collect VAT.
  7. Optional: To add more regions and account numbers, click Start collecting VAT

Hope this helps

From 1 July 2021, the Mini One Stop Shop (MOSS) becomes the One-Stop Shop (OSS). The VAT OSS simplifies Value-Added Tax (VAT) obligations for businesses selling goods and services cross border to final consumers in the European Union (EU).  Within the OSS, there are two schemes, the Union scheme, and the non-Union scheme.
