I need some research done to cover the following points.
We are a graphic design studio, and 50% of our client base is the EU. I was recently told that despite where in the world your selling and invoicing from (Hong Kong in this matter) that I must charge and pay VAT to European countries per European client.
This sounded a bit odd to me so I am looking for a Accountant/Lawyer to do some research and write up a document stating this clearly.
The 2nd point I want researched is that if we do have to pay VAT in Europe, is it true that we can pick just 1 European country to charge VAT in, be it Ireland, who has as a VAT rate of 13.5% reduced, that our services fall into. That we'd only be 13.5% Europe wide?
