Why we need your VAT number

VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax that you pay when you buy goods and services in the European Union (EU). The prices on our websites are including VAT and if you give us your VAT number during the registration process, we can charge you without the VAT. Companies located outside the EU do not have to pay the VAT.

 

The European Commission's online VAT number validation service is available here.
