The global social networking site Facebook has recently announced that it has changed the VAT rate for those who advertise on the site. Are Facebook ads vatable?
Information on VAT
For international companies, they must be registered as VAT payers. These companies can also add a VAT registration number to an advertising account. The VAT registration number is a unique identification number that collects and collects VAT. Available registration thresholds and procedures vary from country to country. Consult tax advisers for additional information.
Will VAT be included in my users’ budget journal?
Your daily budget is not subject to VAT, which we will charge you for purchasing the ads. You have to pay VAT, the total amount including VAT may be higher than your daily budget.
What is the case with VAT in individual countries?
Facebook states that if “you buy advertising for business purposes and your main place of business is not your country, VAT will not be added to your purchase costs.” However, it is up to the user to provide the location of his company; otherwise their purchase costs can cost them up to a staggering 21%. Facebook also states that with respect to your location, “you may be required to self-account for applicable VAT in your jurisdiction of domicile or seat,” so you may need to account for VAT depending on where you live.
If you buy ads for non-business purposes, VAT will automatically be added to the cost of your purchase. However, as a company, it’s important not to get bitten by this fee if it doesn’t apply to you. Many companies advertise on social networking sites, so this step is a bit worrying, because maybe this is a sign of future events.
