The EU VAT Reform is exclusively directed to regulate all transactions involving the European Market. In particular, it removes the VAT exemption for packages entering EU up to €22. This means that starting from July 1st 2021 all parcels entering Europe from a third Country will be subject to this taxation.

VAT is charged in accordance with the provisions of the destination country and must be calculated on the price of the product (not on the shipping fee).

Its percentage differs from country to country as shown in the table below.
