What You Should Know About VAT Registration in Ireland

VAT or Value Added Tax in the EU is generally adopted consumption tax assessed on the added value of all goods and services. Once you register for VAT in Ireland, you are obliged to charge VAT on products and services you sell. VAT registration can be a tricky topic because it involves lots of different scenarios. Let’s clarify the key points about VAT registration in Ireland. 

Legal Requirements for VAT Registration in Ireland

Generally, one should register for VAT in Ireland if they are Irish accountable persons. Additionally, Irish VAT registration is mandatory if you meet the following criteria:

  • Intra-Community Acquisition (ICA). In simple words, in receipt of goods from other EU member states over the value of €41,000.
  • In receipt of services from outside Ireland that are being used on the Irish territory.
  • Businesses registered in Ireland if their 12-month turnover (not the calendar year) from supplying services reaches or exceeds €37.000
  • Business registered in Ireland if their 12-month turnover (not the calendar year) from supplying goods reaches or exceeds €75.000.
  • Taxable persons making mail-order or intra-Community distance sales of goods and cross-border TBE (Telecommunications, Broadcasting, and Electronic) services into the State whose 12-months turnover reacher or exceeds €10,000. 

In all other cases, businesses can choose to contribute VAT voluntarily.

Increased Credibility 

Displaying your VAT number on all official documentation, website, and stationery will give your business a more trustworthy image. Most people are aware of the VAT threshold so you give customers a more realistic image of what you are. 

You Can Claim VAT Refunds
