How will VAT apply to orders shipped from Europe?

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 – those count as domestic sales and will have added VAT charges. We're also always obligated to charge VAT to customers registered in the same countries we are.

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).
