European Union New VAT rules effective July 1, 2021
As of the 1st of July 2021, goods valued at €22 or less that are imported into the EU will no longer benefit from exemption from VAT. This means that as of this date, all goods will be taxed, regardless of their commercial value. Above the €150 threshold, international customers are still obliged to pay customs duties upon importation into the EU. The VAT rate is the one applicable in the customer’s EU member state.
