E-commerce - buying and selling of goods and services online (EU changes June 26th)
Wondering if Fasttech will register with the EU and pay the VAT (VAT that will be added to the total price of the item).

Changes going thru on the 26th of June here in EU and this definitely is something i need to know before i make anymore purchases from Fasttech.

Are you guys looking into this?


Cheers

P.S: I'm from Spain by the way.

Unlikely. Some Chinese e-tailers have, many others have not. There's no international law to compel them to do so.

A number of times, if you search for it in this section of the forums.

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

Recently it was being discussed here: Ordering to EU after July 1, 2021

No comment from Fasttech, unfortunately the thread starter hadn't added "Anniepan" to the thread title.

Imo, a business wanting to sell any quantity of products to EU countries will eventually register with an EU country (only one EU country registration is needed). I left some links in the thread I linked to above.

Agreed. Over a period of time, probably several years, most of the biggest e-tailers will slowly register. With the rest, they'll just rely on the purchaser paying the tax to Customs via the shipper. It's much the same outside the EU here in the UK.

Thanks for the replies guys and for the useful links.

Knowing the changes that would happen i ordered a JuggerKnot Mini/Dvarw DL clones,some coils and a man bag.

For now i am set when it comes to vaping,thank god...couldn't afford regular store prices for vaping apparatus.

Cheers

Hi DjNugget and other friends,

We have received this feedback from many of our customers, we are contacting related shipping carriers to know more detail about this policy, we may need to register the IOSS/VAT account. Once we have update news, we will let you know. Thank you.

Hi Anniepan, I'm glad to hear that you are considering registering for an IOSS account. Thanks for letting us know

Imo utilising any options offered by carriers to handle this will inevitably add to the costs for customers and make your prices differ per country/carrier and more difficult to explain.

How much time does it take for management to respond to the problem?

We've known about these proposed changes since last year. How long does it take them... well, how long is a piece of string tbh.

Tavaly óta tudunk ezekről a javasolt változtatásokról. Mennyi ideig tart nekik ... nos, meddig van egy darab húr tbh.



Unfortunately they are left behind

Not particularly. If they don't, the onus will simply be on the consumer to pay the duty when it arrives at the destination EU member state, much as it's always been.
