How does VAT work?

You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity on the site.

Creoate facilitates the calculation of taxes based on the VAT status of each part of the transaction, so please review your order details carefully before accepting. Once an order has been fulfilled, we may be unable to remedy any overpaid or underpaid amounts.

Some guidance on how VAT is estimated on the platform:

Non VAT registered suppliers: Are not assumed to be liable for charging VAT so VAT will not be present on invoices

VAT registered suppliers: VAT will be added based on the local country guidelines provided by suppliers. VAT registered buyers will be provided with the VAT number of the supplier and may be able to claim this back.

Intra Community Supplies: Where both parties are members of an EC country and VAT registered, no VAT will be added to the item invoice. The VAT number of both parties will be included on the invoice.
