I am a UK business. I have just started dealing with a new supplier in Ireland/UK. When I order goods I get a proforma from Ireland and make payment to an Irish bank account. Once this is done I get an invoice from the UK side of the company who are registered in the UK with a UK vat number and goods are shipped from London.
My problem is they are not charging me vat (they have my vat number) because the payment is made to their irish bank.
So my question is is this correct do I treat them as an EU country or should they be charging me VAT directly.
