I am starting an e-commerce business and I want to export my goods internationally as a professional. What about the VAT I have to charge my customers?
Exports of goods outside Europe (European Union) are exempt from VAT. In other words, if a French company sells goods to an American customer, it can sell the goods tax-free under Article 262 °1 of the General Tax Code (CGI). This statement will be mandatory on the invoice sent to the customer as well as in the accounts.
When the goods leave the country, the customs office of export produces an electronic exit certificate, which enables you to justify to the tax authorities the VAT exemption enjoyed by the export. With Mon courrier de France, we provide you with the electronic exit certificate for each of your shipments to justify your VAT exemption.
Do not hesitate to contact us, our teams of professionals will be able to guide you for your export project.
Shipments transported outside the territory of the European Union are exempt from value added tax (VAT) in accordance with Article 262 of the General Tax Code. The exporter must provide proof that the goods have actually left the territory of the European Union, whether from France or another Member State.
-Countries outside the European Union
-States within the European Economic Area
-European territories that are not included in the EU tax area.
-Overseas departments (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana, Reunion and Mayotte).
-goods shipped by the seller
-goods shipped by or on behalf of a customer established outside France.
Please note! The shipping costs for small or bulky parcels for export of exempt goods are also exempt from VAT.
The exporting company must have an EORI number and will need to record the sale in its accounts. Each sale must be linked to its dematerialised export customs declaration which is provided after the goods have actually left the export territory.
