Why is there VAT on a transaction even though the VAT No is filled?


You are making a business to business (B2B) sale in a European Union (EU) member country, and you expect to see a rate of zero apply to the sale, but the full member country VATrate is applying.

  • The special 0% rate for B2B sales applies on cross-border transactions
    • When you make a sale entirely within one EU country (domestic transaction), the regular VAT rate applies
