Changes to VAT - 1st July 2019

22 June 2019, in Domain Registration, Shared Hosting, Cloud Servers, Dedicated Servers, Colocation Services

New rules to simply VAT within the EU came into force in January 2019.

Under the new rules we no-longer need to charge VAT at the rate set in the customers own EU Country and instead charge VAT at the UK rate of 20%.

As of the 1st July Web Wiz Ltd. will be deregistered from the EU VAT scheme and for customers presently paying VAT, the VAT rate on payments to Web Wiz will change to 20%.

The UK has one of the lower rates for VAT, so for many of our EU customers the changes are good news as it will mean lower payments.

Please note; For our UK customers, VAT registered Business in the EU, and customers outside of the EU there will be no change.
