VAT Info

To ensure WIAL Annual Global Conference 2018 compliance with local tax regulations, 21% VAT must be added to all delegate registrations. Unlike many other B2B transactions, which are generally taxed at the customer’s place of establishment and are handled by the reverse charge mechanism, the WIAL Annual Global Conference 2018 conference is different.

The difference concerns the supply of B2B services in respect to admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission (articles 53 and 54.1 of the European VAT Directive 2006/112/EC, transposed in the Dutch Tax Code at articles 6d and 6e). This is one of the several exceptions to the general rule of the article 44 of the VAT Directive.

According to these articles: “the place of supply of services in respect to admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission, supplied to a taxable person (and non-taxable person), shall be the place where those events actually take place.”

  • for both taxable and non-taxable Dutch persons and organizations, are subject to Dutch VAT at 21%
  • for both taxable and non-taxable persons and organizations within the EU, are subject No-VAT international B2B service. Reversed charge applied”. VAT-number is required.
