About Tax on Gelato API
Gelato is legally obligated to pay VAT and sales taxes on some customer orders. Gelato AS is a Norwegian entity engaged in sales of printed materials to business customers located in multiple jurisdictions across the EU and non-EU. The Gelato Group also has local legal entities in China, India, Russia, Japan, Brazil and Chile. VAT regulation in the different jurisdictions are complex. If you are uncertain about the tax treatment in your jurisdiction, please also contact your Finance department.
Whether or not tax is due depends on the item purchased, the shipping destination, the buyer's location, the production (printing) location and the actual tax rate determined by the applicable state/country and/or local tax rates. Gelato uses the billing address and shipping address you used for your order to determine the applicable tax. If you are in a jurisdiction where tax is due you will see the tax as a line item on your invoices and receipts.
VAT on Gelato orders in the EU VAT area
Gelato is legally obligated to pay value-added tax (VAT) on customer transactions. To determine the applicable tax rate, we use the shipment destination country you have entered in the shipment address in combination with the production (printing) location. In most cases, this means that the VAT rate applied will be that of the shipment destination country, since shipment destination country and production country are normally the same. If you are within a country where tax is due, you will see the VAT in the website checkout and as a line item on your billing invoices and receipts.
