    Hey guys,
    I'm a Unity Asset Store Publisher from EU.
    When customers from EU buy assets they are charged the asset cost + VAT.
    But AFAIK this VAT is never forwarded to me (the publisher).

    The self-bill I get from Unity states VAT 0% (reverse charge), which means that I'm responsible for paying VAT.
    So I need to pay VAT on top of everything I get from Unity, even though the VAT was already paid - so I'm paying VAT a second time.

    Am I misunderstanding something?
    Can something be done about it?

    This is what your VAT ID is for. If you supplied that you don't have to charge or pay for a customer's VAT charge and your invoice towards Unity excludes VAT.

    Thanks for the response CodeSmile.
    You're right - I got confused with the "self-bill" and thought about it as if Unity sent me an invoice.
    It's the other way around - I'm sending an invoice to Unity with a VAT reverse charge note, which means that Unity has to pay VAT.

    Thanks for making me understand ❤

    Isnt that Unity is the seller, so they should only pay the VAT ?
