VAT on An Post

Had been searching for ages trying to work out An Posts VAT policy, finally i’ve found answers which werent easy to find (not on their website and tough to find on Google too!) So here’s the Facts as i understand them:

An post is VAT exempt for postage under – Revenue section Para(xia)1st Sch.

An post will charge VAT on courier post. So you can pay it and claim it back.

I hope this will help some fellow entrepreneurs starting out – i’ll hold my hands up and say it would have saved me serious wedge if i got the correct information the first time round. Its an expensive lesson learned so i felt i had to share it.
