HELP WITH VAT NUMBER?
All business operators holding a VAT code, who wish to receive an invoice, are obliged to refer to this before closing the order. During the “Forwarding” phase, after filling in the fields in the section, “Forwarding address,” you will have to tick the box “Invoice request” and fill in the field, “Company” with the complete name and “VAT code.” If the invoicing address does not coincide with the forwarding address, you may change it in the next phase.
1. EU business Operators (excluding Italy)
The validity of the VAT code will be subject to the VIES control system (VAT Information Exchange System – VAT-related information exchange system). This is an electronic tool for the certification of the VAT codes of business operators in the EU for transborder transaction of goods and services.
For the correct compilation of the VAT Code, you have to insert the number holding the following indications as reference.
|Member state||Indications to fill in the field*|
|CZ-Czech Republic||99999999 or
|DK-Denmark||99 99 99 99|
|GB-Great Britain||999 9999 99 or
999 9999 99 9995 or
|IE-Ireland||9S99999L or 9999999WI|
The format does not include the two letters of the prefix
9: One number
X: A letter or a digit
S: A letter; a digit; “+” o “*”
L: a letter
Once the VAT Code has been validated, the system will automatically deduct the amount of the taxes from the total order, pursuant to Art. 41, paragraph 1, letter a) L. Degree 331/1993. This may be applied exclusively if the forwarding address and invoice refer to the same Country.
2. Business operator and private entity OUTSIDE the EU
All business operators and private entities outside the EU, who access the corresponding site, will automatically see the prices without VAT, pursuant to Art. 8, P. Decree 633/1972. This may be validated exclusively if the forwarding address and invoice refer to the same country.
