Does EU VAT get applied for a B2B business?
Chargebee supports reverse charge mechanism when selling between business within the EU, taxes do not apply for B2B transaction with a valid VAT number.
However, if the seller (you) or the buyer has an invalid tax number, taxes are subject to apply to the invoice. This is because the validation status moves to 'Failure' and the reverse charge fails to apply.
Chargebee uses VIES to validate the valid VAT number and this is done when a customer is added or the VAT number is updated or during the renewal of a subscription. If any of these validations fail the VAT number status will be set to “Failure” and the invoice will be generated including taxes.
