As far as I uderstand, when you in EU pay contractors outside EU, no VAT is applied/reckoned/charged.

But, within EU VAT applies. So- what is the common practice- if the contractor bids, say, for EUR 0,10 per word, does it include VAT? And- if agreement is reached for the above-mentioned rate (if the contractor is VAT payer), is there VAT added in the final invoice or is it assumed as already included?

VAT is quoted and invoiced separately between businesses Aug 31, 2003

Hi Uldis,
Between businesses (defined for VAT purposes as those who are VAT-registered), prices are generally assumed to be exclusive of VAT, although it's a good idea to clearly state that in any quote. VAT needs to be shown separately in an invoice (including both the applicable tax rate in percent and the amount), allowing the recipient to deduct the VAT amount as "input tax" from his/her VAT liability.

HTH - Ralf
