2015-01-14 15:46 VAT update for customers from the EU
On 1st January 2015 a new VAT law came into place regarding the handling of electronically supplied services. As Althaus.IT - the one man company behind T³ - is located in Germany we had to update some stuff to confirm with the new requirements. The primary change is that we now have to take the VAT from the customer's country into account instead using the German VAT for all orders.
We now have to differ four types of customers:
1) All German customer will be taxed the 19% like before. 2) Private customers from an EU country will be taxed the VAT from their country. 3) Business customers (with a valid VATIN) from the EU will get the Premium price reduced by the VAT from their country. 4) All other customers will be charged the regular price just without any tax.
Due to the fact that we don't want to change our pricings, we're going to take the tax changes on our end. This means that we're simply going to earn less as the average VAT in the T³ countries is higher than the German one.
All invoices will include the correct tax. Please report any issues as soon as possible back to us. In addition we're updated our PayPal integration to reflect the used tax in their checkout process.
