If your business should not be charged VAT, you can add your EU VAT ID to your billing address in Gelato API.
With your EU VAT ID, we can identify your order as a business-to-business transaction and depending on whether or not it is applicable, we will charge VAT accordingly.
Zero-rated VAT generally occurs when a country has an extended reverse charge mechanism or if the purchase is an intra-community sale.
You should normally be able to reclaim VAT payments from your tax authorities.
Note: Applicable in EU VAT area
