VAT Numbers

The EU built up the VAT Information Exchange System (VIES) to deflect mishandle of the zero-rate deals impose arrangements for merchandise exchanged the EU by EU part brokers. Every Member State should gather and store particular data about dealers and their exchanges.

Fundamentally, if an Irish based dealer offers merchandise to another Irish based broker, then the business receipt incorporates VAT (at present say 21.5%). On the off chance that a similar merchant offers to a VAT Registered broker in another EU part State, then Zero VAT can be charged. Keeping in mind the end goal to stop brokers being fake (ie offering products to a “customer” in another EU nation, and not charging VAT)…VIES was presented. There are no limits like with Intrastat. Each and every deal you make to another VAT enlisted broker in another EU Member State, where you charge Zero Rate VAT, must be incorporated on your VIES return. Returns are expected month to month or quarterly – yearly in remarkable cases. There are particular strides you should take (ie including their VAT number UK on invoices)…if you are proposing to charge zero rate VAT, so check with your home assessment powers for subtle elements.

The onus is on the dealer to guarantee that the purchaser is VAT enlisted. Accepting affirmation of their VAT enlistment number typically suffices. On the off chance that they are not VAT enlisted, then the overarching deals impose rate of the nation of origin is charged, and the exchange is unessential from a VIES reporting perspective.

In GP, the most well-known answer for robotizing the creation of information for your VIES return is to set up EU particular Sales Tax Schedules…for illustration: SALES-EU-ZERO…this recognizes this exchange from another exchange for zero VAT inside the nation of origin or honest to goodness Zero appraised merchandise sold to shoppers. The standard VAT reports then can be utilized to dissect your exchanges by Tax Schedule, accordingly getting the information required for the VIES return.

Keep in mind this lone applies to fare deals, so disregard purchases…if you import products from another VAT enlisted broker, in another part state, they will charge you Zero Rate Sales Tax. They will give back this information to VIES…not you! Nil presentations must be made where proper.
