I would like to ask you, dear WHT users a question.
If someone is to run a company in EU ( Poland ) and as of now the VAT here is right now 23% do people outisde of EU need to pay it ?
I'm not really sure about the point above, therefore I'd like to hear from someone who is certain to answer my query. I'm in doubt because I have seen some UK Hosting companies that do not charge VAT to US residents or any other outside of EU.
First of all are you VAT registered? If not. Do you want to voluntarily VAT register or (at least here in the UK) turnover £60,000+/year. In which case you have to register yourself.
The general rule of thumb is. Any company in the EEA region you have to charge VAT (including Switzerland). Unless they provide a valid VAT number. In which case you zero rate the VAT. Any company outside the EEA area. You do not charge VAT.
