Registering for VAT in Ireland is a process that typically occurs online through the Revenue Online Service (ROS), available on the Irish Revenue website. If you don’t have an ROS account, you’ll need to create one. Complete the application form with the required information.
Depending on your specific business type and circumstances, you may be asked to submit additional documents such as bank statements, financial statements, or proof of your business activities. Having these documents ready for submission is essential.
Once your application is submitted, the Irish Revenue authorities will review it. The approval process generally takes a few weeks, during which your application and supporting documents will be examined.
Upon approval, you will receive your VAT registration number and a VAT certificate. With these in hand, you can begin charging VAT on your sales and claim VAT on your business expenses.
