Place of Supply

Place of supply is the place where the supply is liable to VAT.

EU Member State

Where the place of supply is an EU member state, the supply is liable to VAT (if applicable) in that country and no other country. Therefore, if the PoS is not the UK, the supply is outside the scope of UK VAT

Outside the EU

Where PoS is outside the EU, the supply is not liable to VAT in any EU state. In this case:
- if a UK business supplies services and the place of supply is in the UK, any VAT due must be account for to HMRC no matter where the customer belongs
- If a UK business supplies services and the PoS is in another EU member state, either the UK supplier or customer is liable for any VAT due in that country
