If you point out that you're VAT registered they should zero rate what they
sell, the same as you should zero rate anything you sell to them (or any
other EU country for that matter).
I deal with a couple of UK suppliers who insist on adding VAT (dunno
why...ho humm), you claim VAT back the same as on Irish supplies, just
remember its only 17.5% over there, don't go claiming 21%.
If you're doing lots of exporting/importing you should be registered with
Intrastat/VIES, talk to the revenue.
