Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to access the buyers’ VAT ID (assuming they have one). I live in the EU, and as far as I can understand the laws of my country, I need to report my buyers’ VAT ID nr in my bookkeeping when I sell to businesses within the EU. When selling to persons within EU VAT is paid by me, but otherwise it is not.
I can’t find this information anywhere in my orders. I have only sold on fiverr so far, never bought anything, but from what I read, FIverr sends invoices to buyers, which would include their VAT ID (again, assuming they need to have one), but I can’t see what the invoice looks like. It seems strange to me that Fiverr has access to buyers’ VAT ID (from the billing form), but that I as the actual seller cannot access it.
So, is it possible to access my buyers VAT ID?
If it isn’t, how have other sellers managed it? Do you ask the buyer to provide it?
(I have tried searching the forum on this topic, but cannot find any post that asks this particular question)
