    I heard that they are going to try and bring this in for physical product in 2016.... if so, the future looks bleak for small businesses everywhere

    Yes, that's the case, so one way or other we need to get our heads around it. ....and that makes me feel like a sad bear too...

    Well.. I only sell to the UK / British Isles so hopefully I'll miss that too.

    I heard also though, that you won't be able to discriminate where you sell to.... Meaning that you won't be able to say that you don't post abroad...

    I'm assuming that this is within the EU only and wouldn't affect sales to countries outside of the EU.

    I'm selling edible items that are relatively fragile (though I do pack them well). My breakage rate via Royal Mail is 0.5% when I send as a large letter and 0% as a small parcel. My business insurance does cover me to send to the EU but I have chosen not to because the p&p rate would be higher than price of my product. In the event of a non receipt or breakage in transit (and the chance of breakage increases with the length of the journey) I'd be significantly out of pocket. So far I've not had a 'change of mind' return in the UK but that is something to bear in mind as well.

    If I was forced by law to post to any country within the EU then I would price to send all overseas packages as insured and signed for which would work out to be considerably more than the price of my items unless it was a large order.
