Does EU VAT apply to Middle East-based dropshippers selling in Europe?

1 0 0

I'm based in the middle east, and I want to dropship from an EU country supplier.
and I want to know if I will need to pay VAT when I'm selling a product from my EU supplier to another EU country ?
And what's about to US ?

Hi Koren,

If you  are still interested 🙂 . The short answer  - Yes. You need to register for VAT in the country of your supplier and register for Union OSS special VAT scheme to sell throughout EU in the same country. You will have to file 2 VAT reports - domestic VAT report for the VAT registration country and OSS Union scheme report  for your sales to other EU countries  (filed in the same country where you have VAT registration)  . - the best EU and UK VAT compliance solution.
