Value-Added Tax (VAT)
VAT is a consumption tax that is applied to orders sold locally or shipped across the borders of the European Union's 27* member countries, the UK, and Norway, as well as to orders imported to these countries from other non-EU countries, such as the US.
In contrast to the US sales tax system, VAT is applicable at each stage of an order’s production.
The applicable VAT rate can vary and ranges between 0% to 27%.
