Claiming VAT

Hello

 

I would like to understand why Adwords invoices are not VAT deductible.

As I live in France I would like a Google.fr to send me invoices instead of Google Ireland.

 

Regards

Hi markjl,

Are you sure you've been paying it? I'd check you invoices and see if there has been any VAT charges as you shouldn't be paying them as far as I'm aware.

The service is being provided from Ireland, not France. Double check it and let us know if you are still having issues.

Hi Mark, Prurefuzz is right. Google operates out of Ireland. VAT is charged to Irish advertisers only (it's a real administrative pain, but we can claim it back). You shouldn't have VAT charged on your invoice. If you are, being an EU business, you would be able to claim it back.

If there's no VAT on your invoice, you haven't been charged it.
