Could you be more specific? Do you want them to not show up in the price guide?
In catalog searches? On the wanted list buy page? On most pages, there is an
option to filter the results by geographic region.

Oh, I think you mean "How do I exclude buyers from the UK?" The easiest
way that I can think of to do that would be to check all of your shipping methods
and make sure that the UK is not selected as a destination country for any of
them. You can do that by going to your store settings under the shipping tab
and clicking on each shipping method, then removing the UK from the list of countries
under the "Destination & Base Rate" section.

Alternatively, you could stoplist every single buyer in the UK.

Oh, interesting experiment.  Maybe there’s a limit in the size of a stoplist?

Might take some time to confirm that.

Sad to see yet another exclude UK buyers.

Nevertheless, best of luck with your shop.

I'm curious why you want to exclude buyers from the UK?
Brexit issues?
There shouldn't be any issues for you. You sell an item and ship. BL takes
care of any taxes.

Just got one order from the UK. We have to join additional vat paperwork in a
clear poach on the envelope/parcel... It's a hassle, I"m not going to buy
new shipping supplies for just one country. I too am thinking of not shipping
to the UK in the future.

I'm confused to why it's a hassle! Printing an extra sheet of paper,
then putting it into a polybag and securing it to a parcel with cellotape. What
extra shipping supplies would you need to purchase? Just think, you will learn
new things about shipping around the world! What are you going to do when the
EU fetch in simular paperwork rules in July? Go with the flow, learn new things!

They would probably need to purchase invoice pouches, which I don't think
most sellers in North America have. I certainly don't. But they are not expensive
and with the EU following suit in July, it may be a worthwhile investment. It
is certainly not going to stop me from selling to the UK any time soon.

Most of us US sellers have only ever needed to complete and sign the standard
customs form/label. Could you provide us any details about what is required to
be on the additional paperwork and if there are other restrictions of requirements
we should be aware of? It would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Jen

Point 4:

4. How does the seller have evidence that they have paid VAT over each sale?

BrickLink is responsible for taxes being paid on qualifying orders. BrickLink
will provide the seller with a copy of the invoice that it has issued to the
buyer identifying the VAT charged. The seller can use this invoice to accompany
the parcel and complete the customs declaration verifying that VAT has been sufficiently
collected at the point of sale.


So you shoul just need to print the invoice and join it to the paperwork… which
necessitates something more to hold the invoice as the CN-22 is generally just
a sticker.

Thanks for the link and the explanation. I will look into finding the clear packets
that are needed. Unfortunately, I don't sell very much overseas anymore because
who wants to pay $15 to ship a package? When I started it cost $3 to send the
same thing. That's some crazy inflation in less than 10 years.

Just bear in mind that it may only be one country right now, but the whole EU
is going this way from 1st July and you can bet the rest of the world will follow
suit. As more of the world shops online across borders govts will want their
cut of it.

So get on moaning or get yourself prepared. Either way it’s happening.

The “BL implemented it for UK first but others (like Norway) already had the
same laws earlier but who cares they are too small countries and EU postponed
so BL’s lateness doesn’t show much” party agrees to this message.
