CEPIC must charge VAT (value added tax) of 19% on all Congress invoices which can be claimed back from your national tax authorities under certain conditions.
Following EU tax law, the place of supply, i.e. the place where the local VAT is to be applied, for conference organizers, such as CEPIC, it is the place where these events/services are physically carried out.
However, participants to the show are entitled to refund of the VAT under certain conditions:
- If your company is based within the EU, please do not forget to specify your EU VAT number.
- If your company is based outside the EU, please contact your tax consultant on the issue.
