Horticultural retailers

You must register and account for Value-Added Tax (VAT) if your retail sales of horticultural products and other goods exceed, or are likely to exceed, €75,000 in any 12-month period.

'Horticultural products' for this purpose means non-food products. 'Other goods' means goods, other than agricultural produce.

This section is relevant to:

  • all retailers of horticultural products
  • garden centres
  • flat-rate farmers.
