Hello,
The supply of space for the use of advertising bill-boards - for example the leasing of a plot of land or the side of a building to allow a billboard to be erected is subject to VAT but, Advertising services that involve the use of a billboard are not subject to VAT.
So, if you are selling the space then that is subject to VAT.
You would find this under the 22/12 Revenue Brief.

The sale of advertising space is a standard rated business activity. Yes, VAT is applicable.
