Value Added Tax (VAT)

We are required to collect Value Added Tax (VAT) on the sale of digital goods within the European Union (EU):

On 1 January 2015 changes will be made to the European Union (EU) VAT place of supply of services rules involving business to consumer supplies of digital services (broadcasting, telecommunications and e-services). From this date, the place of taxation of these digital services will be determined by the location of the customer who receives the service, rather than the location of the supplier of the services.
-- HM Revenue & Customs

If you are resident within the EU, the applicable VAT rate will be added to the final amount due.

Residents of the United Kingdom (UK) are exempt from VAT as DssW operates within the UK and is exempt from UK VAT.

If you require a VAT invoice, please make your purchase first then e-mail us at
