Important notes on sales tax
As part of the ordering process, the correct sales tax will be calculated and reported by the form. The sales tax is only determined by the following factors:
- Are you booking as an individual or as an employee of a company?
- Are you booking an online participation (live or recorded) or an event in a hotel?
- In case of a face-to-face event: in which country does the event take place? According to the legal requirements in the EU, the VAT of the country where the event takes place must be calculated. So if the event takes place in Spain, then Spanish VAT must be applied.
The correct VAT is calculated from the combination of the above factors and is also shown on the invoice.
Companies are usually entitled to deduct input tax. This means that companies can reclaim the VAT paid from the relevant refund authority.
