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. In the payout to you, the VAT on the goods delivered is shifted because the invoice is also made with our Belgian entity. The commission invoice is invoiced from our Dutch entity, with VAT.
Example 2: Dutch brand gets an order from a Dutch retailer. The retailer pays the amount including VAT to Orderchamp. After the order has been completed, we create one invoice for the goods and the commission using our NL VAT number.
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 DE VAT number. For retailers local VAT will be charged when checking out. The brand will receive the money including VAT.
