From 1 Jan 2021

Following the end of the Brexit Transition Period purchases from suppliers in the EC are treated in a similar manner to those from the rest of the world. Whilst these guidelines are being updated please see the Purchasing Guidelines on the Brexit Transition pages for more information.

Goods not physically brought into the UK

If goods are purchased which will not be physically brought into the UK, then the supplier should charge VAT in their country. This VAT must not be separately identified when the invoice is coded to UFS.

Copy invoices to VAT section

The University has to make a special statistical return to Customs for all goods purchased from other member states which are brought into the UK. It is called an Intrastat return. In order to complete the necessary details on this form information which is normally shown on an invoice but which is not held in CUFS needs to be recorded. Departments should therefore send copy invoices for any of these goods to the Finance Division, addressed to:

The Intrastat Assistant
The Tax Section, Finance Division
Greenwich House
Madingley Rise, Madingley Road
Cambridge CB3 0TX
