VAT in the UK now we are out of the EU

Hello, I’d like to know why it says my VAT number in the UK is invalid. I fear now we are out of the EU that I can’t save the VAT on a new Fairphone. Is that correct?

Welcome to the community forum.

Saving the VAT as a business is possible with intra-community (= intra-EU) deliveries, so now that the UK left the EU and didn’t set up a resembling agreement in this VAT regard, your assumption is correct.
Unless you are doing business in Northern Ireland (two links from a quick internet search, as I’m not in the UK) …

… in which case it says your UK VAT number would indeed be invalid nonetheless, as you would need a new “XI” VAT number for registering trade with the EU.
