how to purchase without VAT

Postby blotto » Thu Jan 02, 2014 3:24 pm

I have a VAT nr in Belgium so I should not pay VAT when purchasing...can't find any form on the Fxpansion site to fill in my company and VAT data.
Anyone?

Hi blotto

you will need to purchase with the VAT and claim back with your end of year tax return.

That's the way we do it as well. Kinda sucks working as an unpaid tax collector (which is what being VAT registered amounts to when you think about it) but saves a LOT of money.....

Is this still a thing?

Any other (online or otherwise) shop within EU deducts VAT straight away with a valid company VAT ID presented... I don't want to wait end of year tax returns to claim it back, I want it done straight away on purchase! If other shops can do it easily (even a much smaller UK based developer, like GForce), why not FXpansion as well?

It's not a big deal to implement this in your back end, you just connect to VIES database and check the VAT ID validity during checkout process...

I still check the 'New Posts' link most days in case anyone's stuck on something I can help with.

This thread's from 4 years ago btw, had it been bumped by a spam account?

Nope, not a spam account. Just wanted to know why can't I purchase directly without VAT like I can in most any other online shop...
