VAT registration In Ireland

Every legal business entity operating in Ireland is obliged to pay VAT, save for a few businesses and individuals who are exempted; fishers, farmers and a few others. VAT is added on to the value of services or products at each stage of production or distribution. It’s rather a clever structure set up by governments to make companies unpaid tax collectors. The upside to VAT is that if your business is VAT registered, you can claim a VAT credit from the Irish Revenue for the tax you paid to other VAT registered entities. Sadly final consumers can only pay VAT but they cannot claim it.

Double taxation treaty between Ireland and Belgium

The Irish and the Belgians have a long and remarkable history which stretches back from centuries old. To date, Belgium is Ireland’s third largest export market. One of the major reasons behind the two countries’ flourishing relationship is the Ireland-Belgium double taxation convention. The signing of this agreement has allowed Irish and Belgian residents to conduct business activities in the two countries without facing fiscal evasion or double taxation.
