This is indeed one of the most frequently asked questions.

If you are based in the European Union (except Italy) as a business and you have a valid European VAT number (e.g. DE123456789), you will not be charged VAT.

  1.  Select ‘business’ under your name.
  2. Enter your VAT number WITHOUT A SPACE, e.g. IT987654321
  3. The validity is checked against the European Union’s VIES database immediately.

That’s it. If it’s valid, the VAT amount will be set to zero.
