Hi, I recently registered for VAT due to receiving services from outside of Ireland. I’m a sole trader whose business is producing digital products that are sold through a retailer who collects and pays VAT on the sales. What’s paid to me is net of VAT. My understanding is that, due to place of supply rules, I have to account for the VAT on these received services. My question is, can I also claim this VAT back (reverse charge) since the products I produce are ultimately taxable? While I did meet with an accountant to discuss this and income tax returns, the sentiment ‘Revenue will never know’ cropped up on a few issues, and I didn’t feel comfortable continuing with them. I have an appointment with another accountant but, due to the time of year, they’re not available until after my first VAT return is due.
