After entering a valid VAT number for cross-border transactions within the EU, VAT will be deducted from your invoice, and you can proceed with the payment 😊


  • You may enter a VAT number that is not enabled for cross-border transactions within the EU. In that case, VAT will not be deducted

  • Due to taxes being forwarded automatically, the VAT already applied to an invoice cannot be refunded

  • If your country of residence is the United States, you will be required to provide a valid address

How to Add a Tax Code After Purchase

If you didn't add your tax identification code during the purchasing process and would like it to appear on your invoices in the future, or if you need to update your current data, you can do so by clicking on the profile icon and choosing Account Information:

The Account Information option

Once there, click on Company:

The Company details on the Account information section

Enter your company name, VAT or GST code, and company code. If you do not have a separate company code, enter the VAT/GST code once more. When all is good to go, click on Continue to save the changes:

The Update your Company Information popup with fields to enter company name, VAT and company code

The new company information will appear on your future invoices.
