I am not qualifed to comment on EU VAT on intercompany busines, My point was, if an individual purchases goods from an EU State, the VAT rate of that State is applied, so for example, a purchase from Polaland is at the 22.5% rate.

There is no VAT in intra EU transaction. But the importer has to pay the VAT in customs. That is ofcourse applied to companies and not individuals...

I think UK has to see more friendly the EU ...


Thanks

I was educated before we bacame part of the EU. 
The EU allows all member States to use their own system of measurement and currency! 
Interesting that a contributor wants computer weights stated in kilos!
Some years ago, trading standards prosecuted traders for selling goods in pounds and ounces instead of kilos.
Are UK speed limmits defined in miles/hour or kilometers/hour?
Also, the EU rules state that items manufactured in an EU state and sent from, are liable to the VAT rate of that State, so when Dell transfer production to Poland later this year, the VAT rate should be 22.5%? 
It will be interesting to see if the increased VAT rate is passed on as increased product prices.
I am sure that many of you will have already seen how VAT rates vary, according to what State items are purchased from?
Why does the building industry use the millimetre as the standard of measurement, and businesses such as Maplin think that the unit of current is the milliamp.
A 1000 millimetre worktop or a 2200 milliamp battery are incorrect expressions of measurement.
If imperial measurements present problems. a Kilo is 2.2 lbs!
........and we still dont get paid in Euros in the UK!
