If you choose to use the online service to pay any UK import VAT due on parcels you send to UK buyers, you will need to:

  1. Register for the service
  2. Choose an accounting period from those available
  3. Keep records of goods worth £135 or less you sell to the UK for each accounting period
  4. Work out the UK import VAT due on the goods you sell to the UK for each accounting period
  5. Tell HMRC how much UK import VAT you owe for each accounting period
  6. Pay HMRC the total UK import VAT due for each accounting period
