I would very much appreciate your help with the scenario below:
The company is based in the UK where it has an office, a warehouse, and employees. The company wants to set up a new arm of the business, which sells paints etc for decorating.
The product is manufactured in Italy, and they want to start selling to Germany. The finished product will be transported directly from Italy to Germany, where it will be held in an Amazon warehouse and sold online through Amazon.
Supplier invoices will be paid in the UK through a UK bank account.
Sales invoice will be raised in the UK. Transport is all within the EU.
What are the basic tax implications on such a set up please? Would there be excise duty, etc? Any corporation tax peculiarities? VAT? customs clearance, etc in the UK?
