    I advertise on eBay and sell items internationally. The eBay platform issues invoices for customers if I need to send them and I have different VAT rates for the USA. (8.75%, 8%.. ) 
    My office is in the UK and I normally issue invoices with 20% VAT. So can I declare in the VAT return like eBay or do I have to do my own invoices with 20% for the USA?

    If you’re exporting goods, you won’t need to declare the 20% UK VAT – provided that you retain evidence of export. There may be a liability to sales and/or import taxes in the USA – could that be what the 8% / 8.75% figures are? If so, this would need to be accounted to their tax authorities – you can’t just include it in your UK VAT return.


    Thank you very much!
