If you want to register for TestCompass as a company, you must enter your company details and a valid VAT number.
If your company is situated in the European Union (except the Netherlands), your VAT number will be checked automatically, during the payment process, against the VIES database of the European Commission.
If your EU VAT number is valid then the VAT-amount will be automatically subtracted. This is called the Reverse charge mechanism of calculating VAT. This means you will have to include VAT in your return and eventually pay it in your own country.
If you don’t have a valid VAT number, we should usually charge VAT at the rate applicable in the Netherlands (21%).
If you have problems entering your correct VAT ID, you can contact us.
If your business is situated in the Netherlands we apply the standard VAT rate of 21%.
