*Irish VAT applicable at 23% irrespective of the business status, and also irrespective of where the customer is located.

Where GPA provides delegates with admission only to an EU event, the delegate charge should be treated as taxable where the event takes place for EU VAT purposes.  For example, where GPA as a non-established business in Ireland organises and subsequently charges delegates access to an Irish event, it will likely be required to also charge its customers Irish VAT (on the assumption that it triggers a local VAT registration obligation).  This VAT treatment applies irrespective of the business status of the customer, and also irrespective of where the customer is located / based / usually resides. This position is in line with Article 3, Council Directive 2008/8/EC which amended Article 53 and 54 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC.
