Buying online from a Luxembourg company.

Post by Fitter »

If I order from a Luxembourg company and have the goods delivered to me in France what happens about the difference in the TVA rate between the two countries?
Luxembourg is 17% - France is 20%.

They should charge you 20%, Amazon Germany alter the vat at checkout, their vat has been reduced to 16% as a covid response to stimulate the German economy, no such measure here yet.

Thanks for your swift reply, I will see what happens when I place an order.

Assuming they just charge 17% what happens then - if anything?

They (the company) become liable for the shortfall in the VAT payment.

UPDATE

Just received a parcel from a large Luxembourg company - the TVA/VAT I was charged on the enclosed invoice is 17% :D

Ordered on the 8th received today the 10th - very professional.
