What is IOSS?

IOSS services

As of 1st of July 2021, all 27 member countries of European Union will start using the new VAT system Import One Stop Shop or IOSS for short.

IOSS is a simplified VAT reporting model where you register a single VAT number and use it to report your sales for all EU member states. This new model applies only to sales where the total value of goods shipped is below 150EUR.

The total amount together with the invoice and IOSS identification number will need to be included in the package during customs declaration process. This will allow your package to be exempt from VAT during the import process, speeding up processing and delivery times.
You will then need to report this import VAT amount at the time of your VAT return filing. 

 Here are 3 Simple Steps to  Get Started with IOSS

Step 1

REGISTER

Once you have registered you will receive an IOSS ID number, which you will need to print on all packages sent to EU over under 150EUR.

Step 2

CALCULATE VAT

To use IOSS you will need to calculate VAT on checkout and include an invoice with your package at customs.

Step 3

FILE RETURN

IOSS returns must be filed on monthly basis. Countries outside of EU may need to appoint an intermediary to file IOSS returns.
