The French Tax Administration has announced that on 01.01.2022 the Value Added Tax reverse charge mechanism, will be automatically applied for imports into France. From this date VAT on goods imported by businesses registered for VAT in France, will be deferred and reported in the VAT return.


Following the reform, import VAT will be paid to the relevant tax department and no longer to the customs authorities. Therefore, VAT will no longer need to be paid as part of the customs clearance process for registered businesses.


It is important to ensure that the VAT associated with your AA Labels account is verified and approved via the European Commission – VAT Information Exchange System (VIES) VIES (europa.eu) in order to avoid unnecessary customs clearance delays and that your VAT number is correctly declared in the electronic customs data that we supply with your order.



Although it should theoretically no longer be required on your order documentation, because of the foregoing changes, if you know your business EORI number, we advise that in the short-term, you continue to use it when placing orders in order to avoid potential delays at customs.



For non-business customers this option remains in place and for all orders up to the value of 150.00 € inc. delivery, the VAT will be collected at the point of order and subsequently declared to the tax department of the French government. Allowing the frictionless passage through customs and delivery to your door.



On 01.01.2022 the WCO will implement the 7th edition of its Harmonised System (HS). Although HS 2022 includes new commodity codes and deletions, covering a wide range of goods across industries, it does not alter the codes associated with plain and printed labels, which can be found on our website.
