When is VAT applied to domain transactions?

The application of Value-Added Tax (VAT) on domain transactions through Efty Pay depends on several factors, primarily the locations and statuses of both the buyer and the seller.

Key Factors Influencing VAT Application

  1. Location of Buyer and Seller:
    • The geographical locations of the buyer and seller are crucial in determining if VAT is applicable.

      Status of Buyer and Seller:

    • Whether the buyer and seller are acting as businesses or individuals affects the VAT application.

General Guidelines

  • Domestic Transactions: When both parties are in the same country, VAT is typically applied according to that country's local VAT laws.
  • International Transactions: For cross-border transactions, the VAT rules can vary widely depending on the countries involved and whether the transaction is between businesses (B2B) or between a business and a consumer (B2C).

Efty Pay’s Role

  • Automated Calculation: Efty Pay calculates VAT based on the locations and statuses of the buyer and seller to ensure compliance with relevant laws.
  • Transparent Display: VAT charges, if applicable, are clearly shown before the transaction is finalized.
