Which countries are inside the European Commission for VAT purposes?
When dealing with overseas clients, one of the first questions most people want to know is which country do they need charge VAT to. Here is the full list of countries that are in the EC for VAT purposes...
Countries that are within the UK for VAT purposes
The UK consists of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and are all subject to VAT.
Although the Isle of Man has its own VAT authority, sales to the Isle of Man are treated the same as any other sale made within the UK and are therefore subject to VAT.
