We issue all invoices according to your respective tax settings. If you/your business is based in Germany, invoices are now issued in accordance with the German government's COVID protection shield announced on 23.06.2020.
These changes will be reflected as follows:
Applied tax rate on invoices
- All services delivered before < 01.07.2020 are billed on a separate invoice with 19% VAT
- All services delivered before >= 01.07.2020 and < 31.12.2020 are billed on a separate invoice with 16% VAT
Additional note on invoices
"For all services delivered between 01.07. - 31.12.2020 the 16% reduced VAT (COVID reduced rate) has been applied."
