My client is in the fullfillment businiess sector, so on behalf of his clients (some of which are in the UK, but some are outside the UK) he houses their stock in his warehouse (in the UK), when they receive an order they tell him and he picks it and posts it out to whoever ordered it. He can sends packages all over the world.
Now he is looking at outsourcing the above for some clients to a company based in Ireland. However, he's talking about now having to create his own sales invoices in Euros for the clients he's using the outsourcing operations for and having to set up a bank account in Ireland? I can't see why, but he says this is what Amazon would do?
From my perspective, he would invoice his clients the same as he is doing now, ie from the UK? The VAT issues (for him) would remain unchanged and the fact that he has outsourced some of his own work to Ireland is irrelavent.
