Good news about VAT application on business charges in Venice

EPIA has renovated its ROI registry.  What this means to our EPIA members is that:

  1. EPIA invoices to non-Spanish resident companies will not bear VAT on goods and services;
  2. Invoices to the EPIA coming from non-Spanish resident EU companies will not bear VAT on goods and services; and
  3. Non-Italian EU based members will be able to receive and pay their convention related invoices for goods and services without the VAT applied

Therefore, those non-Italian EU members that have reserved hotel rooms in Venice for the convention should be sure that the reservation is to be invoiced to your company, not to your personal account.  By doing this, non-Italian EU based members will be able to receive and pay the invoice without the VAT applied.

Chiara at Shantaram Viaggi, has been informed of this and can be reached at chiara@Shantaramviaggi.com.

If you have not booked your rooms yet, be aware that the convention is fast approaching and we want to see everyone there for our 10th Year Celebration.”
