. I supply services to a Swiss company and deliver that

Resolved Question:

.
I supply services to a Swiss company and deliver that service (consultancy) in Switzerland as a self employed person resident in the UK. I need clarification on whether the services I supply to Switzerland count towards my VAT registration sales threshold.
HMRC say “Include any zero-rated items - only exclude VAT-exempt sales, and goods or services you supply outside of the UK.”
As Switzerland are not in the EU and are outside of the UK I read this as I do not have to include these sales towards my VAT registration sales threshold calculation.
Is this correct ?

and welcome to the site. Thank you question.

You are correct in your understanding ... exports outside the EU are excluded from calculations threshold purposes.
