VAT (number)

The importance of a VAT number if you're based in Europe

What is VAT?

Value Added Tax (VAT) applies to all countries part of the EU (and other European countries). According to the European Commission, "Conversely imports are taxed to keep the system fair for EU producers so they can compete on equal terms on the European market with suppliers outside the Union." Learn more here.

While adding your details on the Billing Information page, you'll come across a field where you can enter your VAT number. Please note that this doesn't apply to all Prezly accounts.

If you think this applies to you, read on for more info.

Who pays VAT?

As a European business, we need to take VAT into account. Since we're Belgian-based, that means our VAT is 21% (on top of the monthly fee).

We charge VAT

  • if you're based in Belgium
  • if you're based in Europe and CANNOT provide a VAT number

We don't charge VAT

  • if you're based outside of Europe
  • if you're based in Europe and can provide a valid VAT number (this is VAT reverse charge)

Where to put your VAT number?

If you haven't inserted your VAT number at the start of your license or when it changes, you can easily insert or adapt it in Prezly.

Simply click on your name, "Organization Settings" > "Billing Information". Here you can enter your VAT number.

You can leave this blank if you're not currently based in Europe. 😉
