I have a VAT number, and would like to know where I put that information. On the last check out step there is a field for VAT number, but it's empty.
Further I would prefer to have an invoice without the French tax added, is that possible?
According to http://groups.drupal.org/node/22541#comment-78678 it is not possible to have a VATless invoice. The French government thanks you.
Some information, that would have been good if you knew back then...
If seller and buyer belong to two different EU countries, and both there VAT identification numbers are present on the invoice, the buyer can claim VAT exemption (VAT exemption according to directive 77/388/CEE of 17 May 1977).
Good to know for future European DrupalCons. :-)
I am not an accountant, so don't take this as financial gospel, but I believe - I'm based in France and have grilled the VAT department of my local tax office about this on a couple of occasions - that things are not quite that simple. It also depends where the goods/services are deemed to have been supplied. In general, as it was explained to me, if the services are provided in France (i.e. the buyer comes to a Drupalcon in France) then VAT is applicable at the local rate. The French tax code (about as thick as a telephone directory) has a whole page devoted to this, but I can't remember the reference right now.
However, I was glad to see you bumped the forum topic about the invoices - http://paris2009.drupalcon.org/content/ivoices
Well as long as the invoice is correct I can the VAT back...
Almost 3 months since I asked for a correct invoice.
If I don't have a correct invoice I'm not able to state to "Skatteverket" (IRS in Sweden) that I have a cost, and can not get tax or VAT back.
Tax plus VAT is approximately €81, and for a small freelancer that is a lot of money. And I bought and payed for 2 tickets, that is €162.
So, please put together a correct invoice with all information accordingly to French VAT. Like VAT-number etc.
