Find here what you need for Shopify and IOSS
The Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS) is the electronic portal businesses can use since the 1st of July 2021 to comply with their VAT e-commerce obligations on distance sales of imported goods. The IOSS allows suppliers and electronic interfaces selling imported goods to buyers in the EU to collect, declare and pay the VAT to the tax authorities, instead of making the buyer pay the VAT at the moment the goods are imported into the EU as it was previously the case. The IOSS facilitates the collection, declaration and payment of VAT for sellers that are making distance sales of imported goods to buyers in the EU. The IOSS also makes the process easier for the buyer, who is only charged at the time of purchase, and therefore does not face any surprise fees when the goods are delivered. If the seller is not registered in the IOSS, the buyer has to pay the VAT and usually a customs clearance fee charged by the transporter. Crossborderit has you covered. With simple onboarding and easy flat shipment fees, it is easy to calculate the taxes, collect them and let Crossborderit (CBIT), report, pay, manage Compliance for you.
An Import One-Stop-Shop (IOSS) intermediary acts as a fiscal link between the IOSS scheme and distance sellers (specifically electronic interfaces such as e-tailers and web-based marketplaces) to manage the declaration and payment of owed VAT tax for a business or taxable person to the relevant tax authority.That's what we do at Crossborderit. We collect, report, pay and manage compliance for you!
To initiate an IOSS number, you will be charged 60 Euros. The CBIT Monthly subscription plan for legacy customers is €19.99, and Shopify customers can pay with a minimum subscription of $24. Shopify subscriptions should suffice if you already have one. Additionally, we charge 3% payment processing fee on overall VAT plus €1.00 per order per transaction.
Goods acceptable for IOSS number usage are the following: Dispatched or transported from outside of the EU at the time they are sold.
Dispatched or transported in consignments with a value not exceeding a total of EUR 150 (low-value goods) even if the order contains more than one item.
Not subject to excise duties (typically applied to alcohol or tobacco products).
