More information on intra-community delivery
Under certain conditions, deliveries from one EU country to another are exempt from sales tax. In general, a VAT-registered company whose VAT ID is valid for intra-community purchases will receive a net invoice when purchasing goods in another EU country
- Goods are transported from one EU member state to another.
- Goods are purchased that are used in the country of delivery.
- Goods are subject to VAT in the country of delivery.
If you choose intra-community delivery, you are responsible for paying sales tax in the country of delivery. If you have selected this, our system will automatically check in the European Commission's VAT Information Exchange System (VIES) whether your VAT ID is valid for intra-community acquisitions.
If this is the case, your order will be changed automatically.
Since neither the name nor the address linked to the VAT ID are displayed in VIES, we also check whether your billing address is linked to the VAT ID provided. If we need any further information, we will contact you by e-mail.Examples (European Commission website)
