It is collected by VAT-registered traders (which we are one) on the supply of goods within Ireland. Generally, in the chain of supply Printing.ie charges VAT on sales and the customer is entitled to deduct this amount, the VAT paid on their purchases (if they are VAT registered in Ireland).
Printing.ie charges VAT in Ireland at the applicable rate on a per product basis, e.g. letterheads have a VAT rate of 23% whilst flyers have a VAT rate of 9%.
The supply of goods by Printing.ie to a VAT-registered trader in another Member State is referred to as an ‘intra-Community supply’. The place of an intra-Community supply of goods is the place where the transport begins. Printing.ie may apply the zero rate to the supply of goods to a business customer in another Member State if the customer is registered for VAT in that other Member State. The customer’s VAT registration number (including country prefix) must be obtained and recorded by Printing.ie.
EXAMPLE: A customer based in the UK orders some printing (we offer fantastic value for money on all our printing and we love selling to UK clients nearly as much as we love to sell Irish clients). The customer quotes their UK VAT number. As the conditions of an intra-Community supply are met, the supply is zero-rated. We will refund the VAT amount back to the purchasing card upon receipt of the VAT evidence.
