I live in France and I'd like to start selling on Amazon UK with a small french company. I did a lot of research but there are some things I simply can't find. Here there are :
- Are GTCB (General Terms and Conditions of Business) required by law in the UK ?
- How does it work when it comes to income taxes ? I know there’s a double taxation agreement between France and the United Kingdom. But I can’t figure out if I will be having a "permanent establishment" in the UK (because I will have a UK-based third-party company receive the goods on my behalf and forward them to Amazon’s UK warehouses).
In case the answer is yes (I will have to pay taxes there), then will I have to have a UK accountant or can I do it myself ?
- My french company will be exempted from VAT. So will it be exempted from VAT in the UK as well ?
- I read that to get an electronic signature (to file the online VAT reports), I may need an employee who is a national of that country to get it ?... does anyone know if this is true ?
Thank you so much for any help !
