    I am a uk vat registered firm having products drop shipped to spain from spain for a customer based in India ( supply Ireland and Portugal too)

    But for certain suppliers they want to charge me IVA (Spanish Vat) as the goods are not leaving the country.

    I am also looking to supply the same customer who has outlets in Italy also and would have to pay Italian VAT.

    Is that something you can claim back from the Spanish/Italian government ?

    As a UK VAT registered business you may be able to make a standalone claim under the 8th directive. However, from the information provided you potentially have an overseas VAT registration obligation which should be analysed first
