FAQs about European Union VAT
Q: What's the European Union VAT?
A: Since July 1, 2021, Cross-border goods delivered to the destination located in the European Union (EU) are subject to VAT in accordance with the newly introduced VAT rules in the EU. The Value Added Tax, or VAT, in the European Union is a general, broadly based consumption tax assessed on the value added to goods and services. It is borne ultimately by the final consumer and is charged as a percentage of the price, including transportation fees and any other services included in the sale. You can find more details regarding VAT on the European Union official website here:

Q: What is the VAT rate?
A:The VAT rate varies depending upon the type of commodity purchased in the final destination country/place. It is the rate that EU countries have to apply to all non-exempt goods and services. It must be no less than 15% and some countries offer a reduced rate applicable to certain types of commodities. It is often levied based on the price (considering both goods and shipping fees) at the applicable VAT rate.

Q: Is there a difference between VAT and customs duties? Could I pay only one of them?
A: VAT and customs duty are different types of taxes.
VAT is a consumption tax you pay when you purchase goods in a country.
Custom duty refers to the tax imposed on goods when they are transported across international borders.
In addition to VAT, it is often required from the consumer to pay customs duty on imported goods. Unlike VAT, the rate of duty is variable and depends on the nature of the goods being imported, and where they are being imported from.
