Value Added Tax (VAT) - for European Union (E.U.) Customers only

What is VAT

VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax on consumer spending within the territory of a European Member (E.U.) State.

VAT is not included in prices displayed on Domain's site. When applicable, VAT is charged separately and will be itemized on invoices and billing information.

Who may be charged VAT

As a non-E.U. supplier of web-hosting services to customers in the European Union (E.U.), Domain is required to comply with the European VAT (Value Added Tax) regulations and charge VAT to customers located in the E.U.

Customers categorized as Business users in the E.U. may be required to self-account for VAT under EC Directive 2006/112, Art 196, using the reverse charge mechanism. For Domain to determine if you may fall into this category and not charge you VAT, you must supply your VAT Registration Number.

NOTE: If your hosting account accrued charges BEFORE you supplied the necessary information to Domain, VAT will be charged on all purchases prior to the change. 

If you are not familiar with the VAT self-accounting rules in your country, please contact your accountant or professional adviser for more information.

Supply the VAT Registration Number

If you are an E.U. business or charity customer and you have a valid VAT ID, please supply Domain with your VAT Registration Number.

First instance of adding VAT ID:

  1. Log in to your Domains Dashboard.
  2. In the upper-right corner, under your username, click Billing.
