Claiming VAT on a Facebook Advert invoice raised in Ireland

Hi There,

We've got a load of invoices from Facebook for advertising and notice that they state: Customer to account for any VAT arising on this supply in accordance with Article 196, Council Directive 2006/112/EC. on their invoices.

Does this mean that we can raise the invoices to our accounting system with 20% vat.

These adverts are digital supplies to us and these advert go out to the world!  

VAT is a minefield these days.

Would any of you bookkeeping and accounting experts be able to guide us through this as we are clueless. And I dare say it's very important to get this spot on for HMRC?


Looking forward to your advice and guidance.  Thank You

You would in this case code the Facebook invoice as 20% VAT Reverse Charge (giving the net effect of 0% VAT), assuming the business receiving the invoice is VAT registered.
