    Hi

    Hope everyone is well and business is good for you all.

    As a UK purchaser is there any VAT on the domains I register or renew from godaddy.

    Best wishes

    They are charging me VAT (although there was period a few years ago where it seemed to be more variable).

    I don't see the option at checkout to select business/personal (I was doing a checkout for some renwals to check). If I add my VAT number they briefly remove the VAT and then seconds later it reappears. Strange.

    Strange they charge VAT when nobody else in the U.S does.

    All EU based customers are subject to VAT. However, a VAT registered EU entity can make purchases from VAT registered suppliers in different EU countries without VAT being paid, but the transaction is not VAT free.

    Suppliers outside EU, should charge VAT to EU based customers unless exemptions apply.

    Under old rules, VAT liability was determined by place of supply, now it is based on point of delivery.

    This is not an expert view - ask an accountant for exact details.
