Unless a VAT exemption certificate is produced, VAT at the applicable rate is due on:

  • Print issues delivered within the EU
  • Electronic services provided to customers located within the EU

For non-UK EU business customers who can produce a valid VAT number, VAT may be zero-rated, subject to the reverse charge, on the portion of the invoice relating to electronic services provided outside the UK.

For EU customers unable to provide a VAT number, VAT will be charged on the electronic services using the rate in the country where the customer is located.

VAT may be zero-rated provided delivery is to a non-EU address, or the service is provided to a customer located outside the EU or South Africa.

Emerald Publishing reserves the right to change the price to reflect any change in the VAT rate.
