VAT Number: General Area

 The VAT Registration document comprises the following fields:



Used for


Country in which you registered for VAT/ in which you canceled your VAT registration.

Information about your country of registration is particularly pertinent to the determination of the type of VAT transaction for each sales or purchase event (whether it is a cross-border or domestic transaction). The system establishes the type of transaction by comparing your country of registration with a registration country of your customer/vendor (in case they are taxable persons; if they are non-taxable persons, the system compares your registration country with their countries of establishment). If registration countries are the same, the system designates the transaction type as a domestic transaction; if countries under comparison are different countries, it is a cross-border transaction. After determining the VAT transaction type, the system establishes the place of supply (where VAT has to be charged) and adjusts VAT rates available for use for a particular business situation correspondingly, also providing for specific cases of irregular VAT treatment of particular types of goods/services.

For information how to specify that your business partner is a VAT payer, see Company: VAT Tab
