Why is ECHA's invoice without value added tax (VAT)?
ECHA's invoices are exempt from VAT because the Agency is not carrying out an economic activity within the meaning of Directive 2006/112/EC on the common system of value added tax. This means that no VAT has to be paid on the fees defined in the BPR Fee Regulation. For the reason above, ECHA has no VAT number and ECHA's invoices are exempt from VAT
ECHA's Finnish Business ID number is 2139942-8 and it is always mentioned on ECHA's invoices. However, this number is not a VAT number.
