Hello
I have a LIMITED COMPANY registered in the UK. I recently opened a shopify e-commerce store and will be selling products from china to the US market.
1. Do I need my company to be registered in the US. If i begin selling without doing this can I get in trouble?
2. Do I just declare my own tax in the UK?

Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and happy to be able to help you with your question.

Providing you comply with UK legislation there is no problem in exporting to the States for goods sourced in China. You merely declare your profits each year on a form CT600 to HMRC and you can file your abbreviated accounts to Companies House at the same time.

I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.

Thank you for your support.

No, thousands of UK firms export to the States without an US equivalent set up.
