The EC Sales List is no longer relevant to UK companies post Brexit. However, it is still used by some customers in certain scenarios.

The EC Sales List (ECSL) is another reporting requirement for companies exporting goods over a certain threshold to the EU. This report is concerned not with products, but with the total value of orders, including delivery charges, sent to VAT registered recipients, for example commercial entities rather than private individuals. For setting up the ECSL see EC Sales List (ECSL). The screen consists of the upper filters and options and a grid.
