Invoicing without VAT for export

Invoicing from 01. 07. 2021

According to the VAT reform of the European Union (to be found in the Czech Republic under the amendment No. 235/2004 Slg.), the rules of VAT will change with effect from 01.07.2021. From this date, the so-called EU "distance selling regulation" will apply: cross-border deliveries of goods to non-entrepreneurs will be taxable in the target member state from this date, which means that VAT must be paid by our company in the respective EU country.

Orfeo Office s.r.o. trades goods via an electronic interface and therefore pays the VAT rates in the country to which the goods are delivered.

If desired, the customer can therefore apply the local VAT rate at his tax office.
