Am I understanding this correctly?
I will be importing goods from Germany to the UK.
The manufacturer will be shipping to the UK with a zero rated invoice and I will be responsible for all VAT and duties once it enters the UK.
Some of the goods will be going to a German warehouse and for those I will receive a VAT invoice including German VAT for which I am registered.
For those German based goods I will only add the net amount of the invoice into my expenses. The VAT is refundable from sales made in Germany and has nothing to do with my UK accounting?
