Supplies of goods and services
VAT is charged on every taxable supply of goods or services, that is on every supply of goods or services made within the Republic, by a taxable person in the course or furtherance of any business carried on by him.
As a general rule a supply of goods or services is considered to be taxable if made for consideration. Nevertheless, the Law provides that specific supplies are considered to be taxable even if made for no consideration.
The supply of any goods is treated as made in the Republic if the goods are in the Republic. The supply of any services is treated as made in the Republic if the person supplying them is in the Republic.
As an exception, the legislation provides that the supply of certain services should be treated as taxable even if made by a person who is in another country and received by a person who registered in the Republic.
