Starting with November 1st 2020, we are bound by local & EU law to add 19% Value Added Tax to our invoices, in a few select cases. The vast majority of our customers will be unaffected, because it only implies changes to citizens and companies in the European Union.

However, in the spirit of full disclosure, we feel the need to tell you that starting with Nov 1st:

  • if you're from outside the European Union, you will be unaffected, 0% tax;
  • if you're a company from the EU (valid VIES code), unaffected, 0% tax;
  • if you're a citizen from the EU, we now have to charge you 19% tax;
  • if you're a citizen or a company from Romania, we now have to charge you 19% tax;

To rephrase, the new 19% Value Added Tax will be added to your invoice if you are a citizen from the European Union and if you represent a company from Romania.

To provide full transparency on this, we've:

  • mentioned the possible added tax on our Pricing page, right next to each price;
  • mentioned the exact VAT for each country, inside the purchase form; you literally cannot choose a country without being made aware of the Value Added Tax;

We know this will be an inconvenience to some of you - particularly to Romanian companies who need the invoice to deduct the expense, so they can't just "choose a different country". It will be an inconvenience to us too. Unfortunately, it is something we're bound by law to do.

If you have any ideas on how to make this experience better, or have any problems with taxation, please let us know at [email protected]. We're all ears.
