Local Tax Support

This page describes how to set up charging local taxes

In certain countries or regions, Fiscal Hosts are required to collect local taxes—for example, VAT in the EU.

Please contact [email protected] if you need Projects under your umbrella to charge taxes. We will work with you to conform to you local legislation.

VAT

VAT will only apply if the project creates a SERVICE or PRODUCT tier and for events.

Once VAT is setup for a project, we will start asking the country of residency and an optional VAT number to everyone who order tiers or tickets from the project. We will apply the VAT rules accordingly:

  • Charge VAT from the country of the event if it's an event

  • Don't charge VAT if a VAT number is provided

  • Don't charge VAT if it's another EU country

  • VAT percentage depends on the country where the project is

Enable VAT at the host level

If the host is the one supposed to collect VAT (most common case) then you can enable it by going to the Edit section (https://donatepr.com/{my_host}/edit) and setting your country to an European country. The form will then sak for a VAT number.

Your host is now ready to start accepting VAT. You still need to enable it on a per-project basis by setting a country and a "VAT setting" for the project in the project edit page (https://donatepr.com/{the_project}/edit):

Enable VAT at the project level

If the project has a VAT number and should be responsible for collecting VAT itself, you can enable that by following the exact same steps than before, except that you'll choose the option Use my own VAT number on the last step.
