UK VAT registered business making physical sales elsewhere in EC

What I mean is, I usually trade in the UK selling retail to the
general public on internet and at county show type things.I am going
to Eire next month with a lot of stock to sell to the Irish public at
a show. What VAT do I charge, and who do I account to for it? Does
liability arise as the goods leave or return to this country or at
point of sale. I have asked the C&E help number but they sound very
vague about it

Please dont reply to this email address, its genuine but I have
forgotten the password

There's a VAT liability at the time the goods are moved from one EU
country to another. This means that you would technically be liable
to account for VAT as the goods went into Eire, and similarly when the
goods come back into the UK.

The UK end is easy if you are already VAT registered, as it is a
bookkeeping exercise. Your main difficulty is that you will be making
supplies in Eire, and may be required to be VAT registered over there.
You should check with the Irish Revenue Commissioners:
