We are a UK VAT registered company.We purchase goods from UK suppliers and re-sell the goods to different countries
We received a purchase invoice from a VAT registered UK supplier.The bill adress is the adress of our company,the goods are shipped again to us (according to the invoice) ,but the end user is in Norway and the invoice has a VAT (i think there should not be since we can provide paper work proof that the goods left the UK.if so i can tell them to cancel the invoice and re-issue it without the VAT on )
Should the purchase invoice have a VAT or should not ? How does VAT on export work in in these cases ?
In which case the exported goods are VAT exempt -when the goods are delivered (the final user is based) outside the UK or outside the EU or both.
