.... but of course the Irish company itself has to add "import VAT" to your invoiced amounts in its VAT accounts, while at the same time claiming an offsetting amount as input VAT. But they really ought to know that. A customer that asks *you* what the tax position is might warrant a little more investigation (e.g. a thorough credit check). I presume that you've agreed advance and progress payments?
