Printful will apply a VAT charge for orders that are fulfilled at our Europe location with a delivery 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 are not a registered VAT payer in one of the countries where Printful is registered.
If you submit a valid VAT ID to Printful, we'll charge 0% VAT, except for orders going to Latvia, the UK, and Spain, where Printful is a registered VAT payer. Orders to these countries count as domestic sales and will have added VAT charges because we're obligated to charge VAT to customers registered in the same countries we are.
Keep in mind, if you're a registered VAT payer in one of the countries above, but your order has been fulfilled in a different country, you still get 0% VAT rate for orders going to the rest of the EU member states.
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, the UK, and Spain. So orders to the UK have 20% VAT (UK's rate), everywhere else it's 21% (Latvia's and Spain’s rate).
