Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
What is your problem, please? Have you registered with HMRC for self employment?
Correct, inter EU sales are standard rated for VAT. You can recover the inpot tax if you are registered for VAT.
Are you selling outwith the EU?
Supplies within the EU are standard rated. You need not concern yourself with VAT if your turnover is below the threshold which is 85K.
You can tray, but HMRC may well refuse registration. The distributor has got it wrong. Even if you operate the reverse charge there will still be VAT on the invoice. The other snag is that if you do register you will have to charge VAT on all invoices and have to settle with HMRC quarterly.
If your turnover is below 85K they you need not bother with VAT at all.
Yes, effectively, because you can reclaim the Italian VAT as an input.
If you start selling outside the EU these would be zero tared supplies so you still invoice with VAT, but at 0%. Zero rated sales are aggregated with standard rated sales it determining the turnover level for VAT.
Zero rates sales are invoiced with VAT, but at a rate of 0%. Standard rated sales are invoiced with VAT at 20%.
Not quite, you will still be subject to UK taxation on any profits you make. As for VAT sales to the States would be a zero rated supply.
You do not pay any Italian Tax, but there would be an UK VAT liability were you registered for that tax.
Yes you do if you are registered for VAT.
Correct, you can forget all about VAT.
Yes, you are.
