We are buying a componenet from a Slovenian a vendor who charge us Slovenian VAT which is delivered in Italy.
In Italy the compenent is installed in a truck by a third party. The truck is imported in UK. A third party is taking care of the delivery. The final customer in UK is receiving the truck including the component.
We are being charged Slovenian VAT which we cannot recover.
Now what should we charge the UK Customer. We charged standard Rate 20%.
However, I am wondering if the supply took place in Italy and we should actually have been charging Italian VAT. We are not VAT registered in Italy.
This is a one off deal.
