We are VAT registered in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany* and France*. To determine from which entity we’ll create the invoice is dependent on the country where the retailer is based. The VAT always follows the shipment. When a transaction between two companies from different EU countries occurs, the VAT is shifted.
Example 1: Dutch brand gets an order from a Belgian retailer. The retailer pays the amount including VAT to Orderchamp because the transaction is done to our Belgian entity.
Example 2: Dutch brand gets an order from a Dutch retailer. The retailer pays the amount including VAT to Orderchamp.
Example 3: German brand receives an order from a German retailer. Since the goods don’t leave the country, the order will be invoiced through our NL VAT number with local VAT for the brand. For retailers the VAT is shifted in the checkout. (Until we have our DE VAT number)
Example 4: German brand receives an order from a country where we are not VAT registered. Since the VAT follows the shipment, this order will be made through our Dutch entity (NL VAT number), also known as an ABC supply chain transaction. On the retailer invoice, the VAT will be shifted.
