Don’t get caught out! Know your VAT obligations.
Value Added Tax, often referred to as VAT, is a tax that applies to most goods and services that are bought, stored and sold for use in Europe.
VAT is a general consumption tax on: a) the supply of goods and movement of certain goods, b) the supply of services, and c) the importation of goods into the EU in certain circumstances.
While you, the business, pay the VAT to the relevant tax authority, the end consumer pays the VAT as part of the purchase price.
As best practice, all sellers with a VAT number in the respective European country should show the VAT charges, including the VAT rate and number to customers on invoices, where a VAT invoice is required.
