How will I be affected by Box beginning to charge VAT?
Beginning on April 1st, 2014 all invoices from Box.com(UK) Ltd will be VAT compliant. Box has a legal obligation to collect VAT from UK customers (business and consumer). For UK customers, applicable VAT will be applied on a separate line item on invoices. Box will use the service address for each account to determine applicable VAT.
Your invoices can be viewed by visiting box.com/billing while logged in as the admin of your account. For a more detailed guide to finding your invoices, please see: How do I view my invoices?
Which services are subject to tax and what will be the effective rate?
Each of our products have been reviewed independently and tax due is dependent on a number of different factors, including product type purchased, service address, applicable tax jurisdiction, and local tax laws.
What if my business is located outside of the UK?
EU business customers must account for VAT themselves under the reverse charge mechanism therefore no VAT charge will be applied to the invoice. This does not imply that your purchase is exempt from VAT. Please consult your local tax authorities for further information.
If you have any questions, please feel free to submit a case to our Billing team!
