In June 2021, the European Law was approved by which companies from outside the European Union that sold to customers within the European Union should declare the VAT of the customer's country, so they had to add to the prices of its products the cost of VAT of the corresponding European country.

However, there is another option whereby the sellers do not collect the VAT, but the customers must collect it.

Being Shopee a marketplace where all its sellers are from outside the European Union, being these mostly from Indonesia and China, we find the problem of knowing how you want if we have to pay the Shopee VAT.

Therefore, this article on how Shopee VAT works will give you the necessary information to know if this is the case or not.

How Shopee VAT works

Shopee does include VAT on its products, so when you shop at Shopee you don't need to pay more when the order arrives at your doorstep, rather it's the sellers who will have to declare the VAT themselves.< /p>

There is also no price limit for your purchases for which you must declare VAT on your part. Even if you make large purchases, you will not have to pay VAT.

You should also bear in mind that the price of the products you see on the product or category page coincides with the price you have to pay in your shopping cart and this will not increase any more.

For you to have more information about how reliable Shopee is, you have to know that it is not the sellers who declare VAT in your country if you make a purchase from them, but rather that it is the platform that requisitions the tax to the seller and they declare the taxes cumulatively, so for the sellers it is a real benefit and greatly reduces bureaucracy.
