Yes, all of our EC customers outside of the UK will be charged VAT at 20% except in the following cases:
- If your school/company/organisation has a valid VAT registration number.
- If the district/school/local authority through which you are purchasing AB Tutor has a valid VAT registration number. So, for example, if you are a school in Ireland, and the VEC (Vocational Educational Authority) through which you purchase the software is registered for VAT, then you will not be charged VAT.
If you are purchasing AB Tutor online, then you will be automatically charged VAT unless you can provide a valid VAT registration number. If you are in business or under the umbrella of a VAT registered authority, then you will need to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with details of the number of licences you require and with information about your VAT registration circumstance. We will then check this and issue you with a VAT-exempt invoice which you can still pay by credit/debit card online.
