RAVAS have also been shown a letter from HMRC that confirms that Channel Island Retailers are shipping goods from the UK that are over £18 in value and operating UK VAT registered companies to handle these transactions. Surely if a company that is trading in the UK is shipping goods via Jersey back into the UK that is clearly an artificial abusive arrangement? There is no reason to do it if you are already on the UK mainland, other than to avoid the VAT ? Why else would you do it ? Please…send us your answers…we’d love to know.
