0% EU Exports to EU VAT registered businesses

Transaction Type: Sales Invoice and Sales Credit Note

Example: Office Furniture


  • Suppliers Name and address
  • Supplier’s (your business) VAT Registration Number
  • Customer’s Name and Address
  • Customer’s VAT Registration number
    (The customer must be registered for VAT in another EU country, and you must check VAT number is valid, otherwise you are liable for the VAT if it is not a valid VAT number for that customer)

Validate an EU VAT number https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/

  • Description of goods and services
  • EU 0% VAT Rate to be used and that the 0% vat rate clearly identified on the Sales Invoice

CN8 (Intrastat codes) may also be required https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/business/calculation-customs-duties/customs-tariff/combined-nomenclature_en


Use a VAT rate separate from Sales at 0% to Irish Customers i.e. EU VAT 0%
This will make it easier to complete your VAT 3 and RTD returns
