When creating a Native Instruments User Account you can choose between a Private or Business Customer type.
Business Customers can purchase products excluding VAT. VAT is an indirect sales tax, which stands for "Value Added Tax". If you live in the European Union (but outside of Germany) AND are exempt from VAT, enter your VAT Code in the appropriate field of your Native Instruments User Account (it is necessary to be registered as a Business Customer to use this option).
Before finalizing the order process, the German VAT will be deducted from the sales price to avoid double taxation. Please make sure that you are exempt from VAT in the EU before entering your tax ID.
Important Note: When creating a Native Instruments User Account bear in mind that after clicking the SAVE button, your selection (either Business or Private Customer) becomes permanent and CANNOT be changed afterwards. If you need to change your account type it will be necessary to create a new account with a different email address.
