Hello from Rome (Italy)

I am new to this forum and to Proz.

I work on withholding tax basis (do not VAT).

I have carried out some translation work for an international organisation. What do I need to include in the receipt/invoice?

I don't have to apply the 20% withholding tax, don't I?

Many thanks for your help and patience.

VAT*: EXEMPT Apr 9, 2009

Hello Patrizia,

Welcome to Proz.Com

Because we are in the EU, if you do not pay VAT and you work for an international organisation (outside your country), you should add the following note: VAT*: EXEMPT

*Levy of VAT reverse charged to recipient of service in accordance with Article 9(2)(e) of the 6th EU VAT Directive" Or something like that.

I hope the answer helps you.
Maybe translators from your country may write something more...
