There are approximately 2,000 UK businesses registered for the VAT MOSS system. Businesses will be able to continue to use the system for sales made during the Implementation Period. Businesses can then choose to register for the non-Union scheme in any EU country and continue to use VAT MOSS. They will not have to register in each EU country unless they choose to do so.
