This article discusses A2 Hosting policies regarding the European Union's Value Added Tax (VAT).
The European Union (EU) assesses a consumption tax on goods and services for use in its member countries. This tax is known as the Value Added Tax, or simply VAT.
Although A2 Hosting is a U.S.-based company, we are required to comply with EU regulations regarding VAT.
We charge EU-based customers for VAT using the tax rate effective in their respective countries. For a complete list of member countries and their corresponding VAT rates, please see the official EU VAT rates.
A2 Hosting's VAT identification number is EU528002111.
If you run an EU-based business, you may have to account for VAT yourself by using the reverse charge system. In such cases, A2 Hosting does not charge you VAT.
To prove that your organization meets the requirements for VAT self-accounting, you must provide the following information:
If you are a new A2 Hosting customer, you can provide this information at the time of purchase in the order form. If you are already a customer, you can add this information to your account settings information to be VAT-exempt for future invoices. For information about how to do this, please see this article.
