International Taxes & VAT
If your business sells goods to customers within the EU then there is a good chance you'll need to register for VAT in at least one of those countries.
VAT (Value Added Tax) is a consumption tax imposed on goods and services, ultimately paid by consumers but collected and remitted to tax authorities by registered businesses. Businesses trading in the EU may need to register for VAT. VAT registration allows businesses to charge and collect VAT on their sales and comply with applicable rules and regulations.
The international equivalent of VAT is known by different names in different countries. The basic principle of the tax is the same, although the specific rules and regulations vary by country. You must ensure that you remain compliant with the local authorities in all the countries you are trading in, and we would recommend getting in touch with a compliance expert to guide you through it.

EORI (Economic Operators Registration and Identification) is used by the EU to identify businesses involved in customs activities. Businesses engaged in customs activities with the EU or non-EU countries may need to register for an EORI number to comply with customs regulations and ensure proper customs clearance. Failure to obtain an EORI number can result in delays or complications in customs procedures.
EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility), is an environmental policy which requires producers to take responsibility for the entire life cycle of the products that they put into the market, including their eventual disposal. In the EU, businesses importing certain products must register for EPR, financing the collection and recycling of their products through eco-contribution which is required to up sustainability efforts globally. The ultimate goal is to encourage a more economical approach to sustainable selling, reducing waste and encouraging more reprocessing and recycling of materials into high quality secondary resources.
