VAT on cross border transactions within EU

In order to ensure great quality, fast delivery, and thorough geographic coverage Gelato will sometimes send printed materials from one EU country to another EU country.

If a valid EU VAT ID is provided with your billing address in Gelato API, then such supplies are treated as intra-community sales and are subject to zero- rated VAT, unless the VAT ID provided is registered in the country where we ship the printed materials from, as this would be considered a domestic sale.

Gelato mainly prints materials in Germany for intra-community sales, but it can also be printed in other EU countries.

Your VAT ID should be in the official VAT identification number format explained here.


Important: If no valid EU VAT ID is provided with your billing address in Gelato API, we will charge VAT in the delivery country where Gelato is VAT registered.
