Reporting Global Sales

Global sales can be hard to keep track of. We’ll ensure your sales comply with UK tax laws and can guide you when to take action in foreign jurisdictions.

Most of our tech clients have worldwide sales, often selling digital products and services to a global customer base. We can help you with global sales reporting, for the EU markets (including ‘VAT Moss’ on digital services in EU) and non-EU markets, so your business complies with UK tax laws. We also help clients automate the reporting of global sales.

As your business grows and increases sales globally, accounting for each sale in the UK becomes trickier. For example, VAT on business to consumer (B2C) sales of digital services in the European Union (“VAT Moss”) are reported one way, whereas B2B sales or sales to customers based outside the EU are subject to different accounting and tax rules. 

Some accounting firms struggle to cope with reporting global sales. It’s second nature to us, because it applies to the majority of our customers. For example, if you collect payments from customers using the Stripe platform, we can help you automate your sales process, integrate your invoicing with Xero and ensure that your customers all receive the correct tax treatment no matter where they reside. 

As the UK has now left the EU some of the red tape tech companies face in dealing with EU sales has been simplified. However, this is not the case for all businesses – those of you selling software to consumers in Europe will still need to comply with VAT MOSS regulations, which means registering in Ireland to file these returns as it can no longer be done in the UK. We’ve helped clients with the process of getting set up in Ireland for VAT MOSS. We can do the same for you.

"Hands down the best accounting firm that I have every worked with in London. My company would not exist today without them. These guys really go above and beyond and they keep getting better over time. Smart, Efficient and Reliable."
Thierry Sequeira, director of Massive Rocket
"We have been conducting business in 3 different countries and have experience with many different accountants. Working with Barnes & Scott was a dream come true! In addition to a really zen accounting experience they were actually proactively helping us generate additional funding for our business."
Zuzanna Kosowska-Stamirowska, Director
"I have been with Barnes & Scott since the beginning of becoming limited. They are a great team; who make the time to talk through the process of taxation and how I can grow and maintain my business. A very personal team of prompt, professional advisers for every facet of my business, with a wide range of knowledge. A very safe pair of hands for tax and business growth."
Sam Hofman
"I call Tas the CFO in my pocket. Barnes Scott has been super-helpful, and I have a lot of trust in his team. I love how the firm is very tech literate and automates as many finance tasks as possible."
Tara Louise Reddy
"Perhaps the most useful specialist support Barnes & Scott has given us is in managing a claim for R&D tax credits. Our company spends a lot of time and money on innovative research. The amount that can be claimed back is significant but claiming the credits can be time consuming and complicated. Barnes & Scott made it easy. They have also helped us with EMI share options, project managing the process from start to finish."
Adam Rainsford, Financial Director
"Barnes & Scott took all the stress and aggravation away when they set up our accounting systems. Their service is thorough and very reassuring. I would highly recommend their services."
Sarah Rowley, COO, VOTAL
"Tas and his team have helped us navigate setting up a new business and taken the fear that we would somehow get everything wrong out of it! We have been able to focus on the things we are expert in, knowing our finances and accounts are in safe hands. Highly recommended."
Ruth Barnes, Director
"I’m a paperworkaphobe. Trying to run a business obviously means there’s ton, especially when it comes to taxes. Tasnim and his team helped us set up on HMRC, Xero, and Receipt Bank, making everything from submitting our daily receipts to end of year taxes insanely easy. Oh, and they even helped us get £40,000 back from the government in “R&D” rebate, something I didn’t even know existed. We’ve now saved time and earned more than we spent on accounting. I call that worth it."
Nick Broad, Director
"We used to handle our book-keeping in-house and it became unmanageable. A friend recommended Barnes & Scott and we engaged with them to take over our accounts and book-keeping. The transition was completely seamless. Tas took the time to understand what we were doing and how they could take over with minimal disruption and finding optimisations along the way. We now save a couple of days of work each month and have complete peace of mind knowing that our accounts are all filed correctly. Whenever we need some specialist advice it’s easy to pick up the phone. I would thoroughly recommend Barnes & Scott as a great value, reliable and efficient solution to your accounting needs."
Jonny White, Director
"Barnes & Scott have helped Vivacity grow from a company of 5 people to 50 during their involvement over the past five years. By professionally handling our annual return, VAT returns and R&D tax credit reclaims, it has freed up valuable management time in the company to allow us to focus on the core business."
Peter Mildon, CEO
