Parcel2Go launches International Shipping Hub – a definitive guide to the latest EU VAT, customs and import tax changes

Parcel2Go launches International Shipping Hub – a definitive guide to the latest EU VAT, customs and import tax changes.

  • Shipping hub is an indispensable tool for businesses who ship abroad and those who regularly trade on online marketplaces and web platforms such as eBay and Shopify.
  • It has been produced in response to the major changes to EU VAT that were rolled out on 1 July 2021, which affect all businesses selling goods to customers in the EU and beyond.
  • Information covers all the essential VAT, import tax and customs considerations – including DDP, DDU and EORI.
  • Comprehensive guides, checklists and more help ensure senders don’t fall foul of new taxes and regulations.

Parcel2Go – the UK’s leading parcel comparison website – has launched a comprehensive information hub covering all essential aspects of international shipping. Produced to guide users through the major EU VAT changes that came into effect on 1 July 2021, the hub is split into specific sections for business shippers and casual consumer senders. Featuring essential guides, checklists, EU country VAT calculators and more, it’s a one-stop-shop for ensuring parcels can be sent without holdups and unexpected extra costs as they enter and leave EU countries.

As new EU VAT and customs regulations come into place, many businesses and
consumers are unaware of how this will impact their international shipping processes
and costs. Having accurate and user-friendly information that cover all international
shipping considerations will help ensure those shipping abroad from the UK (and vice
versa) do not get caught out.

Adam Harris, Managing Director for Comparison Sites at Parcel2Go said:

“When creating the International Shipping Hub for our customers, we set out to
build a genuinely useful resource to help UK businesses and everyday senders
avoid delays to their shipments. With the post Brexit changes to the way VAT is calculated and applied to UK originating shipments, we recognised that getting to grips with the new regulations could be challenging – hopefully, we’ve helped explain and simplify things for our customers by creating easy to use solutions that add value to the shipping process”
