Value Added Tax(VAT) is a tax assessed on the value added to goods and services — including digital. It’s charged as a percentage of a price(e.g. $1.00 pledge with 23% VAT will have a final cost of $1.23).
On Patreon, we cover the collecting and remittance of VAT charged to patrons. We’ve made these guides to help creators and patrons through how VAT applies to them:
For patrons, we list the amount of VAT added to your membership payments on your Billing History page, where you can also download a VAT-compliant invoice beginning December 1, 2021. And for creators, we list the amount paid by your patrons for each country, in your Sales tax report.
The following table provides the VAT rate that each EU-based country requires(this list is not exhaustive, please speak with a local tax advisor on the VAT for your specific country)*:
