When it is necessary to apply for a Irish VAT number?

Below you will find some examples:

  • You are importing goods in Ireland from a country outside the European Union (e.g. from China or Turkey). Subsequently you are selling these goods in Ireland or in other EU countries.
  • You buy goods in Ireland (with Irish Value Added Tax) and you deliver these goods to customers in other EU countries or you are exporting these goods to customers based in countries outside the European Union.
  • You buy goods in Ireland (including Irish VAT) and subsequently you sell these goods to customers based in Ireland.
  • You are organizing a conference, workshop, seminar or congress in Ireland and you charge registration or a fee for admission.
  • You are selling online products to private persons in Ireland and you are reaching the threshold of € 35.000 for distance sales.
  • You are selling online products via Amazon. And Amazon is asking for a VAT registration number. When you sell online products in several EU countries using the so called Pan-European FBA Programme, you will have to register directly for the VAT. The Amazon warehouses are so called Amazon fulfilment centres. FBA is an abbreviation for Fulfilment by Amazon.
  • You are bringing your own goods over to Ireland from another EU country. In this case the delivery is a so called fictive EC sales delivery.

We will check if you have a tax liability in Ireland, and when necessary take care of the VAT registration there, the submission of VAT returns and requests for refund of VAT paid (deductible turnover tax).
