Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Ioss

IOSS is a brand-new system for documenting and collecting VAT on low-value products sold to consumers in the EU by various international shipping companies. Its objective is to streamline the international shipping rates along with import processes and customs clearance for low-value B2C exports. The product value for these shipments is calculated using the combined value of all the products in a single package.

IOSS was put into place in order to:

  • Avail yourself of paying the VAT at the time of consumption.

  • Encourage fair competition between international and European e-commerce companies.

  • Create a standardized, open-book VAT system for providers of goods and services.

  • We provide a straightforward method for declaring and paying VAT through the One-Stop-Shop.

How is the IOSS operated?

???????Now that IOSS has been formed, most shipping international companies will request that merchants register for an IOSS number in advance and submit it to the shipping carrier each time they desire to send a product into Europe. This helps in lowering the international shipping rates. The shipping company will give this IOSS number to local customs at the time of importation. The VAT (20% in this example = 10 EUR) will be directly charged to the merchant's IOSS account.  

Signing up for the IOSS

You must first register in order to take part in the IOSS. Any member state may sign up for the IOSS through the IOSS website as of April 1, 2021. You must choose an intermediary with an EU base, though, if your business is not situated there. An intermediary can be any taxable person with a residence in the EU. Once you have an IOSS VAT identification, you can utilize this intermediary to fulfill your IOSS VAT obligations. VAT must be declared and paid for imported goods that are sold online.  As a result, an  IOSS registration is necessary for any distance sales of imported goods to customers located in the EU.     

When should the IOSS model be applied?

-When merchandise is sent or sold at the time of purchase outside of Europe.
-When the value of the cargo does not go beyond €150.

The services of an IOSS intermediary like Avalara are required in order to register under the system for Indian sellers who wish to sell low-value commodities to the EU. The middleman is accountable for reporting and payment, just like the seller is
