THIS PAGE ALLOWS YOU TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE CHARGE VAT ON ONLINE ORDERS
There are two ways to insert and validate your VAT ID:
You can sign up an account and register your VAT ID in the account page
You can enroll your VAT ID on the cart page
So that you'll be set, when applicable, as VAT exempt. In addition to this, the VAT identification number will be placed in your invoices. There are two facts that determine whether you should or should not be charged VAT:
Where you are buying from
If you are a consumer (B2C) or business customer (B2B)
(your easy consultation, see below map).
Considering that MMC COLOMBO is an Italian based company, customers that should be VAT charged are only those that are based in Italy (both consumers and business) and all consumers who are located in other EU countries.
European Union business customers will be VAT exempt in Italy. We will capture and validate your EU VAT identification number and, when applicable, automatically set it as tax exempt. This means that if you are an EU business customer, you will be registered as VAT exempt and therefore automatically VAT won't be charged during the checkout.
VAT is never charged if you are based outside of the EU (both consumers and business).
