The applicable VAT rate for admission fees in The Netherlands regarding Classical:NEXT 2020 is 21%.

This VAT rate on admission fees has to be charged on all delegate registrations for Classical:NEXT, regardless of where the taxable person is based. It is also exempt from the reverse charge procedure for EU companies with a valid VAT ID number.

For more information, please see the European Commission Taxation and Customs Union website.

 

VAT reimbursement on Expo Stand bookings

If you book a stand in addition to your registration (exhibition package) at Classical:NEXT you do not need to pay VAT, if:

  • your company is based in the EU and you have a valid VAT ID number or
  • your company is based outside the EU and can provide proof of tax residence and entrepreneurship.
However,
  • If you are a German company with a valid VAT ID number you have to pay German VAT on the exhibition package.

Taxable persons from outside the EU who incur VAT in connection with their business activities in a Member State, in which they do not make supplies of goods or services, are usually entitled to deduct the VAT charged in that Member State, This "deduction" is typically by means of a refund of VAT from the Member State in which the VAT was paid. Please contact YOUR local tax authorities about how to claim the VAT refund.

  • uses them for an exempt activity or
  • is not obliged to charge VAT on his/her outputs (e.g. schools, banks, insurance companies, small businesses under the exemption threshold etc.).
