How to request a VAT-free invoice?
If you want to receive VAT-free invoices, you need to add a VAT number that has been validated by VIES in your Sendcloud panel by going to Addresses > Invoice address. For us to shift the VAT, you need a VAT number that's been verified by VIES. When your number isn't verified, we can't submit it to the tax authorities and VAT will still be calculated on the invoices.
If you have introduced a valid VAT number, you won't have to make any further changes.
