Uk Web Sites screwing the Irish Vat System

I’ve noticed lately that many UK sites that are clearly doing over the £35,000 threshold in B2C sales to Ireland, still aren’t charging their customers Irish VAT. With the country in such a mess financially at the moment surely this kind of low hanging fruit is something revenue should be focusing in on. Eventually i would guess revenue will catch on and then they will back charge the companies for the VAT they should have been charging.

So to my fellow E-Entrepreneurs if your delivering into Ireland and make over the threshold in sales, get registered to save yourself some unexpected audits and penalties.
