That's OK and I got to the point you reccommend, Asking our accountants, and I now understand 'distance sales' but they are not French speaking (shouldn't the French provide something in English)
Also if they think there is any VAT owing in France, but has already been paid in the UK, do I have to get that money back from HMRC and pay it to the French ? .. and how far back does this go ?Can they levy penalties on this ? ... it is very confusing.
I await your reply .. thank you.
Thanks for your help with this, but you really haven't told me much more than I knew. I was hoping for a moe definitive answer, not a broad brush. but will take your suggestion of asking them to respond in English.
I'll close now.
