Currently only video items are on sale — taxed under the Italian tax regime with a 22% VAT. (Please note that video items will be on sale under the Italian regime only until the end of the 3rd quarter, i.e. 30 September 2019.)
This means a 22% VAT will be automatically added in the following cases: (i) if you buy the videos as an individual, not matter where you are from; (ii) if you buy the videos as a business based in Italy: you’ll need to enter your VAT number (without spaces, in the IT12345678 format). In this case you’ll be able claim back VAT in your next VAT return. Please note that the invoice issuer is registered outside Italy, but has an Italian VAT number for the purposes of organizing BP19 Translation Conference – and the videos are still sold under the Italian taxt regime. Since our company is registered outside Italy, the obligation to issue electronic invoices does not apply to us. You’ll receive an automatically generated pdf invoice that you can submit to claim back the VAT amount.
No VAT will be added in the following cases: (iii) you purchase the videos as a business with a valid VAT number issued in an EU member state outside Italy. On the Checkout page you’ll see a field that says ‘I pay as’: select ‘business’ in the dropdown list, then a field appears where you can enter your VAT number: make sure you enter it without a space (e.g. NL12345678); (iv) you purchase the videos as a business registered outside the European Union. On the Checkout page you’ll see a field that says ‘I pay as’: select ‘business’ in the dropdown list. You don’t have to provide a VAT number, although if you have a local ID number you’d like to see on the invoice, you can enter it there. Use this option only if you are (or your company is) classified in your country as an entity that’s eligible for VAT-free purchases of services.
