B2B Services UK to EU VAT query

Hi all, its been a long time since I've been here. Anyway, just a quick one (hopefully). Just got a new client who decided he would be able to compile his own accounts (heard that one before). He's selling digital services, mainly into Germany. Business is based in Northern Ireland, which is still part of the EU for goods but not services. I already compile a VAT OSS returns for those clients selling business to consumer digital services into Europe via Ireland, but can't see clear guidance from HMRC on the business to business sales part. Is there still EC VAT reporting or is the invoices just sent with no VAT?

He said he read up on it at the time and 'by his understanding' (I won't be placing a lot of faith on that) he didn't just needed to work the same as before, ie EC sales. To cap it all I've just found a pile of invoices have been sent with 20% added fgs. Its a mess I'm fixing now.

I've had a rough day as it is here, now finding out about the VAT I've had to wade through HMRC guides but hopefully one of you will have dealt with B2B services sales from UK to EU already and will be able to give me an easy answer.

I am no VAT expert, but I thought B2B services to the EU was 'outside the scope' of UK VAT



These are only my opinions of how I see things and therefore should not be taken as advice
