Do I Need to Pay VAT?

There are several factors which determine whether you need to pay Value Added Tax (VAT) for orders on i.materialise: 

1.    The availability of a valid VAT number (in case of business clients*)

2.    The delivery destination of an order and 

3.    The location of the invoicing office.

Business clients with a valid* EU VAT number Private clients without a EU VAT number
Delivery destination is in a Non-EU country except for UK No VAT will be applied (export). No VAT will be applied (export).
Delivery destination is in UK i.materialise has an invoicing office in UK, so UK VAT will be applied when destination country is UK. UK VAT will be applied.
Delivery destination is in a EU country

i.materialise has its invoicing office in Belgium (for all countries except for UK).

When the destination country of the order is in Belgium, then the Belgian VAT rate will be applied. 

When the destination country is not in Belgium but in another EU country, then no VAT will be applied (cross-country B2B transaction) and you will receive a reverse VAT charge invoice.

The VAT rate of the destination country will be applied.

*If you have a valid EU VAT number, you can enter this in the Company info section. Please note that invalid VAT numbers will lead to the cancellation of the order.
