High volume internet sales clients

and VAT

Didn't find your answer?

Your clients who sell goods through ebay, amazon, esty, their own website through plugins etc how easy do you find it to get the required VAT information when they sell globally?

I assumed you'd be able to run a report but it doesn't seem so straightforward. There must be something I'm missing.

Each platform has its own reporting, we long ago gave up trying to use the data obtained directly from the OMP, you will find using something like linkmybooks will give you accurate data and save hours of work.

We do also use OneSAAS with QBO but the setup is horrendous

None of their reports are great. Paypal was OK using the finacial summaries and download a spreadsheet to split the sales between UK and foreign, but the switch to e-bay made it a lot harder. Etsy, you have to download their summary, and is sometimes tricky. And some of the other online shops are even trickier. But they need to understand every transaction, one of my clients has stopped all exports now, selling an item for maybe £25, they they could be paying £18 in consignment charges, seller fees, commission etc, blissfully unaware they were losing money. It involves so much work, it's really not easy at all. So I'm in the same boat as you, you would think Paypal, e-bay etc would produce a simple monthly report splitting the sales between countries but I can't find it on any of them.

One client offered to give me his login details so I could try myself but I thought best not as I don't want anything untoward coming back to me. I'm guessing none have agent access. All one giant pain in the [***].
