VAT rate on online clothing sales (international)

If clothing is sold online (retail website) to non EC countries what is the VAT rate?

Didn't find your answer?

My question relates to an online business selling clothing online. They charge VAT to all customers including international deliveries. Should they be zero rating sales to e.g. USA?

I currently understand that as it's retail then we charge the same (VAT inclusive) price to everyone, but I can't find anything by HMRC to suggest this is true.

They sell their products for the same price worldwide. Sales to U.K. and EU will be taxed at 20% out of the gross. However sales to the rest of the world (including Channel Islands) are zero rated - so no VAT needs to be accounted for. Client needs to retain proof of export. Sales in the USA might be subject to GST if sales are numerous in a particular State (economic nexus).

The exact same question was asked days ago. If it wasn't you who asked it, there is a handy little feature called search.

This is a duplicated thread which somehow has been resurrected.
