Exporting small items to Gibraltar


I am a sole trader who hand makes items. I have a shop in Gibraltar that is interested in stocking my work but they have asked if I am VAT registered for export because as they are VAT exempt they can only work with companies who are set up for export.

I’m not VAT registered as I’m such a small concern, can anyone suggest a way forward as I’m rather confused!

Thank you
