From 1st January 2021 new rules for the collection of UK VAT through online marketplaces have come into force.
eBay state on their Managed Payments Developer hep page:
"Starting January 1, 2021, the UK government will introduce a new model for the VAT treatment of goods arriving into Great Britain from outside of the UK for marketplaces. Many of our APIs will change to include Value-Added Tax (VAT) wherever applicable. Please make sure to go through the API and VAT documentation to understand the changes."
I can't find any of the documentation they are referring to in order to work out how we can separate sales which the seller is responsible for VAT and sales where eBay is responsible for VAT.
Does anyone know how to do this?
eBay - could you explain where in the API documentation this information is? Ideally if this is in the Orders API that would make the most sense.
I know eBay have a similar thing for US and Australian/New Zealand sales tax.
Specifically we need to be able to identify if the seller or marketplace is responsible for VAT on each order from a managed payments payout.
Thanks in advance.
