Do I have to pay taxes when my organisation is based in Germany?

If your organisation is based in Germany we will collect these information from you: You'll be asked if you’re using Volunteer World for business or personal purposes.  If you choose personal purposes, you will not be asked to provide a VAT ID. If you choose business purposes, you'll be asked to provide your VAT ID.

Personal or Business Use

Do we charge VAT?: Volunteer mediations are made through Volunteer World GmbH which is based in Germany. We do charge VAT if you are using Volunteer World for personal or business purposes.

You'll be subject to VAT charges at the current German standard rate, as required by German law. This means we will surcharge 19,00% on our commission.
