International Parcel Delivery
The Import One-Stop-Shop (IOSS) was created to facilitate and simplify the declaration and payment of VAT for distance sales of imported goods with a value not exceeding EUR 150.
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 at the moment the goods are imported into the EU.
Sending goods into the EU and IOSS
To make the buying experience hassle-free for the end customer, the retailer (the shipper) is responsible for paying the taxes and duties.
In most cases, the eCommerce retailer will apply these fees at checkout and directly collect payment from the buyer.
- Buyer has the reassurance and protection for unexpected taxes and duties
- Encourage new sales, by actively promoting solutions on website and market seller platforms.
