I run a small b&b in Ireland. Booking.com ask for my VAT-number. But according to the rules I do not need such a VAT-number in Ireland. How do I handle this?

I'm in a similar situation. I was advised by them to send them an e-mail at the recipient  customer.service@booking.com with a paper to prove my fiscal status. This is nonsense since there exist VIES database and this is a public resource.... No comment.

So I advise you to do the same, send them an e-mail and try to show them something to convince them. It looks like their fiscal advisor is in a leave :)




Indeed but all you really need to do is put in your PPS number IExxxxxxxxx  

I'm pretty sure at one point there was a No option on that page too.
