Product Sourcing Exports

Question

Hi,

We are planning on starting an export division in our firm. We will be acting specifically as an intermediary between the manufacturer/supplier and the importer and solely profit on a commission for service basis, taking command of everything from sourcing to shipping.

Do the export regulations for our services differ from that of a direct exporter of goods?

It hasn’t been easy trying to find this information online in regards UK product sourcing agents.

Thanks!

Answer

Hi there,

Thank you for your question. One thing I’d definitely say is that the Open to Export webinar on selling as a service overseas takes on the VAT and IP aspects of selling a service:

Hope that’s useful!
