VAT on Loan of goods in EU

VAT on Loan of goods in EU


We have loaned an item to a customer for 45 days. The item was delivered to their UK office - although they then delivered it to their office in Germany. They raised a PO in Euros but we were only told to dispatch to the UK address. Should this invoice include VAT or is it classed as a service and the supply is classed as the place of business where the receiver is established?

I assume if it is an EU transaction I will then need to register for ECL?

Thanks in advance

If you loaned it to the UK operation then I would just charge them with UK VAT as I assume the goods will be returned to you in the UK. Technically there is a separate supply by your customer to their German operation and that is their problem.
