Depending on where you reside, or where the training seminar is organized/held, local laws require that we charge Use, Sales, VAT or GST taxes to your order. These taxes are in addition to the price of the software or training and are listed separately on your invoice. In some cases, these taxes may be excluded if you have valid exemption documentation, as discussed below.
When purchasing software and maintenance, sales and/or use tax may apply to your order (excludes training and consulting). The appropriate sales/use tax percentage for the following states will be added to your invoice unless you provide a Certificate of Exemption or Direct Pay Authority number with your order.
For shipments/purchases of software and maintenance to/from European countries (except Italy, France and Turkey, as discussed below), invoices are issued by HBM United Kingdom Limited. They are subject to UK VAT of 20%.
For training seminars and events, the VAT will depend on the office that organizes the event or where it is held:
Software purchases shipped to Italy or purchased while in Italy are subject to Italian VAT (IVA). This is 22%.
Software purchases shipped to France or purchased while in France are subject to French VAT (TVA). This is 20%.
You are subject to Turkish VAT for any purchase if you reside in Turkey. This is 18%.
You are subject to Singapore Goods and Services Tax (GST) for any purchase if you reside in Singapore, except for training seminars and events organized by HBM Prenscia Pte Ltd outside Singapore. Effective July 1, 2007, this is 7%.
Training seminars and events organized by HBM Prenscia Pte Ltd may attract GST under certain conditions, depending on event location and attendee residency:
When purchasing products or services through one of ReliaSoft’s resellers or distributors in China, the following taxes apply:
DISCLAIMER: TAX RULES CHANGE FREQUENTLY. RELIASOFT OPERATES OFFICES AROUND THE WORLD AND MAKES EVERY REASONABLE EFFORT TO BE CURRENT ON APPLICABLE TAX RULES. IF, CONTRARY TO THE INFORMATION WE CURRENTLY HAVE, YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO PAY CERTAIN TAXES WHICH RELIASOFT OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES HAVE NOT COLLECTED, YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE TO SELF- ASSESS THE TAX AND PAY IT TO THE APPROPRIATE TAX AUTHORITY IN YOUR COUNTRY. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO CASES WHERE TAX EXEMPT STATUS CAN BE ACCEPTED BUT YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO PAY ANY TAX DIRECTLY TO YOUR TAX AUTHORITIES (I.E. RELIASOFT’S ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR TAX EXEMPT STATUS DOES NOT IMPLY THAT YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO DIRECTLY PAY ANY TAXES AS A COMPANY).
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THOSE CLAIMING TAX EXEMPT STATUS
The online store (and invoices/quotes generated) will automatically include, as a separate line item, any applicable taxes for your region, regardless of your tax exempt status. If you have provided a valid Tax ID/VAT Registration number, this added tax itemized on your invoice will not be billed to you. If paying by check or issuing a Purchase Order, you can deduct the tax amount from the total amount due shown on the invoice/quote.
