I have an EU VAT registration number. Am I exempt from paying VAT?

All payments and invoices to Nelio Content Premium purchases are effected and managed by FastSpring, a United States-based seller of digital goods specialized in safe and secure internet sales. FastSpring is registered with the EU through a special scheme set up for companies outside the EU. FastSpring’s VAT number is EU826012240 and it begins with EU because FastSpring is located in the United States, not in a European Union member state.


Following EU policies, FastSpring collects and pays VAT to the appropriate authorities for Nelio Content Premium purchases in the EU and the VAT rates differ by country. VAT taxes are reported and paid to the EU by FastSpring. The invoice FastSpring provides to you at purchase completion will include the VAT amount as well as the FastSpring VAT ID.

EU VAT Exemption

Your business can be exempted from VAT Tax by providing your valid VAT ID at the time of purchase. If you provide a VAT ID, no VAT will be charged, and the VAT ID will be included on the invoice FastSpring provides at purchase completion.

When introducing your payment information, make sure you have clicked on the Enter VAT ID link and have entered your VAT ID. Automatically, the VAT will be discounted from the payment.
