VAT & 123-reg Invoices

This article explains why VAT is automatically added to 123-reg invoices.

Value added Tax (VAT) at the current rate is added to 123-reg invoices by default. Currently VAT for purchases made through 123-reg is charged at 20%.

However on 1st January 2015, owing to changes in EU Consumer law, VAT charges will vary based on the place of supply of the product or service purchased, and not the place of sale. This means that, where previously all 123-reg sales included VAT based at a UK level, VAT will now be based on the country the purchase has been made from.

Below is a breakdown of the standard rate of VAT for each of the EU Member states.
