EU online retailers stop selling to UK consumers

Having only just written in glowing terms about The Revival Club, a boutique men’s fashion brand based in Italy, I was disappointed but not surprised to see a mail from them titled, ‘We’ll be back soon’. I’m amazed that more has not been said about this latest development. Online retailers across the EU have stopped selling to UK consumers. What’s going on?

It’s all to do with value added tax (VAT), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and where the tax is now collected.
