Why VAT Rate Calculation is Important

Before you charge a VAT, you have to know which VAT rate is applicable for the customer. However, if you have a business or corporate customer, the VAT rate will be zero-rated for electronically supplied services (or ESS). This is a process called reverse charge whereby the responsibility to report and pay VAT has been reversed to the buyer.

Charging VAT on behalf of tax administrations requires that are registered for VAT and have obtained a unique VAT number. The collected VAT returns are filed electronically on a monthly or quarterly basis. Contact us to see how Vatstack’s solutions can help you to automate the process.
