Value Added Tax, or VAT, is charged based on the region of your credit card.

Will I be charged VAT?

Depending on where you're based, there are different cases for VAT charges.      

When you're not charged VAT:

  • You're a company or individual in the VAT area of the European Union.
    To waive the VAT charge for EU companies, enter your VAT number upon checkout.
    Note: If the VAT field is left empty or the VAT number is not validated upon checkout, VAT will be charged.

  • You're a company or individual outside of Europe.
    Our system automatically detects when your credit card is non-European and therefore does not charge VAT.
  • You're a company or individual in Europe, not in the VAT area of the European Union.
    Our system automatically detects when your credit card is from a European country outside the EU VAT zone and therefore does not charge VAT.

When you're charged VAT:

  • You're a company or individual in Belgium.
    Within Belgium, StoryChief charges 21% VAT. If you're a VAT registered company, you can claim it back from the government in your quarterly VAT return.
  • You’re a company or individual in the VAT area and you're not VAT registered.
    StoryChief charges the VAT of your country.
