There is a special place of supply rule for valuation and work on goods. This special rule only applies to B2C supplies. The special rule for B2C services says that the place of supply for valuation and work on goods is where the work is physically performed.
In order to understand whether this special rule applies, it is important to understand it in these contexts:
what is meant by goods
what is the valuation of goods
what is work on goods
B2B supplies are treated under the general rule, which is described in the Place of supply of services ― the general rule, relevant business persons and belonging guidance note (although see also the special rule for insurance repairs later in this guidance note).
HMRC takes the view that in this context goods means ‘all forms of tangible moveable property’. Goods therefore includes finished commodities and raw materials. However, it does not cover immovable property like land such as that set out in the Place of supply of services ― land-related services guidance note.
Work on goods is not defined in the UK legislation, but HMRC suggests that it includes essentially any physical service carried out on another person’s goods.
