Why am I paying VAT on the conference registration fee?
You are paying a Value Added Tax (VAT) on the registration fee because it is required by the laws and regulations of the EU and its Member States.
To ensure gasworld’s compliance with local tax regulations, VAT must be added to all delegate registrations. Unlike many other B2B transactions, which are generally taxed at the customer’s place of establishment and are handled by the reverse charge mechanism, the gasworld conference concerns the supply of B2B services in respect to admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission. VAT must be paid on the fees in the country where the conference is held.
What percent tax is VAT in Europe?
Registration fees for the gasworld conferences in Europe for both taxable and non-taxable persons, regardless of their nationality, are subject to VAT at the rate applicable in the country in which the event is being held.
