Purchasing PI without VAT
« on: 2016 December 12 06:44:50 »
Hello from Italy,
I tried to buy PI but it is impossible to remove VAT from the total amount.
I have my own italian VAT id and I need the invoice.
I tried to contact PI support by web form without answers...
Could anyone help me?
TIA

Cristiano

Hi Cristiano, welcome to the forum. I don't know about EU legislation but this information from FAQ could help.

The price of a commercial PixInsight license is 230 Euros for users from non-EU countries. Users from EU member countries must pay their respective VAT rates, that is, the final price for an EU user is 230.00 EUR plus the VAT rate applicable in his or her country. See this page for detailed information on the European legislation that forces us to apply VAT rates this way.

If you want to know the price of a commercial PixInsight license in other currencies (e.g., USD), you can use a real-time universal currency converter such as xe.com. As of updating this FAQ entry (April 2016), the price of a commercial PixInsight license is 260 USD approximately.


Saludos, Alejandro.

Hi Alejandro,

Thanks for your replay. For Italian customers, the price of PI will be 230 Euros + 22% Italian VAT = 280,60 Euros but in this
case the receipt must be issued from an Italian company. For Germany customers  the price will be 230 + 20% VAT but the receipt must be issued from a German company etc.
Pleiades Astrophoto, S.L. is coming from Spain, so VAT % will be the Spanish for all EU people.
I have my own VAT id so I need the invoice without VAT and the final price will be 230 Euros. I have not found how
to buy the software in this way. Paypal add VAT amount automatically.
Ciao,

Cristiano

Hi Cristiano,

Our apologies for taking so long to answer your request. We have already sent you the necessary information to purchase your license without VAT from an EU member country, provided you have a registered EU VAT number for your company.

Unfortunately, *very* unfortunately, this is not the case since January 2015:

For all licenses purchased from the EU, we are now legally obliged to apply the VAT rate corresponding to each EU member country, which means that we have multiplied an important part of our unavoidable bureaucratic work by 28. Thank you, European Commission!
