Non-EU listings As a venue, Cayetanna can’t provide specific tax advice. It’s up to each seller to research their local laws about collecting and reporting taxes for their  sales. Tax regulations can vary greatly by location. If you’re unsure how to charge tax, we encourage you to consult an accountant or other expert in your area.


A VAT Identification Number (VAT ID) is used to identify individual businesses for the collection of taxes.

Everyone that sells goods on a regular basis qualifies for being taxed for VAT. Cayetanna does not require sellers to have a VAT number to sell in our marketplace. However, businesses in certain countries are encouraged or required by their governments to register for a VAT identification number if they make a certain amount of money in a given time frame.

Because VAT laws vary from place to place, we’re unable to advise sellers on whether or not they need to obtain a VAT ID. If you have any questions about whether you need a VAT ID, please consult your local government.

In the EU, Cayetanna has a reporting obligation to share your VAT ID with local authorities on a VIES Return. VIES Returns must include the sale of services as well as goods. This filing applies only to sales from sellers within and delivered within the EU. For example, VAT registered sellers in Spain supplying goods to VAT registered sellers in other EU member states without charging Spain VAT must complete a VIES return for the Spanish Revenue. There is no minimum amount for reporting requirements for these sales.

Cayetanna is not charging sales commissions or listing fees! 

Please consult your local tax authority or a licensed professional for information on VAT requirements in your location.

For EU countries, the applicable VAT rate depends on the nature of what is sold, and the country in which the supply of goods and services is taxable with VAT. With regard to the supply of goods and services in the EU, the applicable VAT rates can be checked on the site of the European Commission. For example, from January 1, 2015, VAT on services is generally assessed on the country where they are consumed.
