VAT Charges to EU member states
Unless you provide the number which has been allocated to you for intra-EC trade. In certain countries for example. Spain and Italy, businesses are required to register their VAT number for Intra -EC use and if they don’t do this, the number will show as invalid on the Europa website. If you do not supply your VAT number then we are obliged to charge UK VAT on any supplies of goods.
