Hi Thanks for your response What does that mean - that it will be managed most of the time in London but the goods are in Italy? Do you own this business in Italy - will the goods come to the UK first then be shipped elsewhere - will you suffer VAT on the shipping of goods to Italy Will you also provide design solutions - as in admin work in the UK - I need more information as this is not a straight forward situation as you first suggestedWill you go to the country of where the client isAre they businesses themselves (the clients) or just standard retail customers .... ThanksSam

I am the customer (client) in fact [need to know VAT is applicable or not]
I am the end-user of the goods (not a business)
Goods will not come to UK, but will go from Italy to Middle East
The goods supplier in Italy is a 3rd (independent) partyThanks
