VAT number on the invoice
Is there a way to provide you with a VAT number for invoicing purposes? The Polish tax authorities require an invoice to have the vendor’s VAT number present and the recipients VAT number in order to be valid.
I know that Linode is based in US, where VAT does not exist, but maybe you guys could comment on that?
This matters as I'd like to have Linode as a company expense.
Edit: This should only be used in situations where the VAT number is required on the invoice for general accounting and record-keeping purposes.
However, since you're not paying VAT on your Linode invoice trying to claim VAT relief on it would be fraud…
I wouldn't call fraud marking the payment for Linode VPSes as a company expense. I think the OP was clearly not about claiming VAT relief.
In your invoice I see you pointed out YOUR VAT code : EU372008859
However this VAT code does not exist in the EU
My questions are
- What is the purpose of this code ?
- Do you have a Tax account in the EU ?
- Is this number for your internal reference only (so I can ignore it) ?
