Guidance in Relation to Two Tier VAT Registration.
Revenue has recently issued guidance in relation to the new Two-Tier VAT registration system that has come into effect since 15 June 2019.
Under the new Two-Tier VAT Registration system, a taxpayer can apply for a ‘domestic-only’ registration or an ‘intra-EU’ registration.
Taxpayers applying for ‘intra-EU’ status will be required to provide additional information on their application forms. Taxpayers with a ‘domestic-only’ status may at any time apply for ‘intra-EU’ status, at which point they will be asked to provide the same additional information.
Taxpayers with live VAT registrations granted prior to the introduction of Two-Tier Registration will be treated as having ‘intra-EU’ status.
Revenue will typically screen every VAT registration thoroughly to ensure that only legitimate applications result in the issue of a VAT registration number. This process can take a number of weeks.
