Create a Shopify store and dropship to the USA with products from China

08/12/2017 10:22:47
Hi, really I'm looking for sound advice regaring what I need to do to be compliant.

I'm based in the UK, and will have a website advertising to people in the USA.

>> They Order From My Site
>>>> I fufill the order with my supplier in China
>>>>>> Supplier sends orders to the USA (possibly other countries, but US is the start)

What additional Tax guidance do I need to take into consideration ?
I have no idea how much I would make so I'd start as a sole trader then upgrade to a LTD if needed.

Hi

As the business is being carried out from the UK the income would be taxable in the UK. You would be required to register self employed and complete a self assessment return. If any foreign tax was to be deducted you would also need to complete the foreign section of the return to claim foreign tax credit relief.

Unfortunately we would be unable to provide any information about becoming a Ltd Company. Any enquiries for this should be directed to corporation tax help line on 0300 200 3410.

Kind regards
