1. It’s likely you will not become VAT liable in Estonia, if products are not delivered to Estonia.
2. You need to apply for VAT number in the countries where you have warehouses (countries where the products are physically stored and the turnover is created). For example, if you are using UK and German warehouses, you need to obtain VAT number in UK and Germany.
3. Once you reach distant selling threshold, you need to obtain the VAT number of the country where the threshold is exceeded.
