Hello, Should a business based and registered for VAT in Italy, charge VAT on the translation services provided to a business based and VAT registered in the UK? Thank you,

Hi Joanna,
Please refer to notice 741a for guidance on VAT on services.
From the limited information provided it appears the supply may be subject to the reverse charge where the Italian business would not charge VAT
and instead it is the responsibility of the UK business to account for the VAT instead. Section 5 of notice 741a provides details on the reverse charge.
Place of supply of services (VAT Notice 741A) 5. Reverse charge
Thank you.
