EU Triangulation post Brexit

Following Brexit, UK intermediaries will no longer be able to benefit from triangulation simplification when arranging supplies between two different member states. Henceforth, the UK intermediary will need a VAT registration in the member state supplying the goods e.g. goods supplied France – UK – Germany.

Before

German VAT number provided and UK ignored for VAT purposes.

Post Brexit

The UK intermediary will need a French VAT registration. French output VAT will be charged. The UK company will make a zero rated onwards supply.
