VAT still applied to UK citizens?

That aside, the requirement for US companies to pay VAT for purchases made from within the EU is a EU directive and NOT a UK one. As such it is still questionable as to whether or not **LL** is still obliged to pay VAT for transactions originating from the UK. Nobody has given a definitive answer to this although I appreciate we now know LL’s stance on the matter.

Per the UK government website, VAT is to be paid by other countries:

a FYI

the requirement to pay VAT is a UK one.  The 1994 Value Added Tax legislation is here: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/23/contents

the EU directive to which Britain was subject too (and no longer), is a treaty framework which EU countries adhere to when making changes to VAT that they may of may not charge to their people/companies. Britain exiting the EU doesn't change the obligation to pay VAT  as per the 1994 act

If you are in EU and want to compete with other landlords, create a formal business entity, apply for a VAT registration number and deal with the VAT in your accounting etc. Run a business like a business. If you want to just have a private sim for yourself, rent it from the existing landlords and pay in L$ - L$ purchases don't have VAT applied.

paying in euro's by paypal or skrill is also possibe without VAT and you spare your L$ fees/credit card charges.
With the rigth landlord renting is cheaper than owning.
