How does Weglot manage the VAT?
In this article, you'll see how the VAT is working with Weglot, in which scenario you have to pay VAT and how to add a VAT number to your account.
I. Do I have to pay VAT?
As Weglot is located in Europe, France, there are 3 different possibilities depending on your location:
1. I'm located outside Europe
If you are not located in a European country, you won't pay any VAT at all.
When you select your country, for example, the United States, the VAT number will automatically be set at 0%
2. I'm located in France
You'll always have to pay a 20% VAT, even if you enter a VAT number.
3. I'm located in another European country
In this case, it depends if you have a valid VAT number or not (if you're purchasing as a business or as an individual):
- If you have a valid VAT number, you won't pay any tax as you'll be exempt from VAT
- If you don't have a valid VAT number, you'll pay the VAT in place in your country
II. How can I add my VAT number
When you select a plan for the first time or when you upgrade it on this page, you are able to indicate your VAT number on the field "VAT NUMBER (ONLY FOR EUROPEAN BUSINESS)" below:
