HMRC outlines changes to VAT treatment of imported goods

The changes will ensure that goods from EU and non-EU countries are treated in the same way and that UK businesses are not disadvantaged by competition from VAT-free imports.

From 1 January 2021 there will be changes to the VAT treatment of low value consignments (LVC). These are goods with a value up to £135 – the threshold for customs duty liability. The HMRC guidance states that VAT will be collected at the point of sale rather than on import.
