VAT on BtoB sales of goods to southern Ireland

VAT on selling goods to a business in Southern Ireland

Didn't find your answer?

UK company planning to sell goods to trade customers (not consumers) in Soutrhern Ireland. Do they just zero rate these sales and get the Irish customers to sort things out in Ireland or will the UK company need to register for VAT in Southern Ireland. If they have to register can anyone recommend an agent/accountant in Ireland who could help?

Zero rated sales invoice, zero rated on VAT return. Irish customer deals with the import VAT and duty their end.

You need to read the "Brace for Brexit" series of articles here on AccountingWeb, https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/content/brace-for-brexit because its much more than just zero rating a sale.

Does import duty apply to your goods (making them more expensive to the Irish customer), will your customer be happy with them being the importer, are you instructing your freight agent correctly, are rules of origin documents in order, if the goods are agri-food, cosmetics or medicines then there are further rules to follow, etc.
