VAT Rates

The Value Added Tax, or VAT, in the European Union is a general consumption tax. Business which are located within the EU, must charge their customers using the appropriate VAT rate for their goods and services. As of 2015, a number of key rules have changed. This particularly affects many digital services as customers must now be taxed at the rate in their member state, not that of your company.

If your business is based in Europe, ChargeDesk can add the appropriate tax rates to your invoices.
In order to use this feature, sales tax must already be included in the price a customer has paid. Typically this means that you charge one price for a product for all customers and then account for the appropriate percentage of tax after the purchase has been made.

Activating VAT rates will add a MOSS VAT Summary to the reports section for this company. You can use this to easily report your VAT to MOSS at the end of each quarter.

You can activate VAT Rates by setting "Use VAT Rates" to "Yes" under your invoices settings.

ChargeDesk can handle a number of different tax senarios including the ability to tax based on the customer's member state, and to zero-rate invoices where a VAT number has been provided by the customer (which they can do by adding this to their own invoice in ChargeDesk).

We automatically update tax rates when they are changed by member states. Current rates are listed below.
