Printful will apply a VAT charge for orders that are fulfilled at our Europe location with an end-address in the European Union.
VAT doesn't apply to any orders fulfilled in the US. It also doesn't apply to orders shipped to non-EU member states.
If you submit a valid VAT ID to Printful, we'll charge 0% VAT. Except for orders going to countries where Printful is a registered VAT payer (Latvia and the UK) – those count as domestic sales and will have added VAT charges. We're also always obligated to charge VAT to customers registered in Latvia and the UK.
If you don't submit a VAT ID, we'll add VAT to your orders fulfilled in Europe that are going to an EU member state.
We calculate VAT with the following formula: (Printful product price - discounts + shipping price)*VAT rate %
The exact VAT rate depends on whether the order is going to a country where Printful is a registered VAT payer. As of now, we're registered in Latvia and the UK. So orders to the UK have 20% VAT (UK's rate), everywhere else it's 21% (Latvia's rate).
