Info by Never Rich Enough | Last update on 2020-10-05 | Created on 2019-03-10

Anyone who uses the reverse charge procedure for business to business (B2B) services between companies in the EU pursuant to the Value Added Tax Act and therefore issues an invoice without value added tax must note the following in addition to the usual information on the invoice:

The invoice must include both, the value added tax identification number (VAT number) of the service provider as well as the VAT number of the recipient of the service and it must include a note indicating the tax liability of the service recipient written in the recipient's local language.

In English, this note is "Reverse Charge". The following table contains a translation of the note into the national languages of the EU.
