Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.
I do hope you know and understand about the reverse charge system when you are invoicing EU customers. If you have their VAT, or equivalent number, then you post the VAT simultaneously as an input and and output, effectively zero rating the supply. You then have to complete an EU Sales List at intervals to cover the position. A company with which I am associated undertook one of those in the 80s and has never done one since yet receives these lists with monotonous regularity!
Now I hit a problem. What do you mean by 'Origin EU Country or 3rd Country'? Are these moneys you have paid or do you mean a journey starting and finishing outside the UK? Please advise. I need an explanation, please before I can advise.
I can comment on the first eight though:
2. Reverse charge item
3. Should be 20% VAT
5. Should be 20%, why exempt?
6. Reverse charge item.
What I mean with origin :- Where the haulage service started
Origin EU country = The haulage service started in an European Union country.
Origin 3rd Country = The haulage service started in a Non European Country.
Destination _ Where the haulage service ended
In Portugal for every question I have asked above there is a article, that article has to be mentioned on the invoice. How does it work in England, is there any article / notice to be mentioned on the invoices that states why we haven't charged VAT?
Thanking you in advance and awaiting your reply.
