Delegate liability for Value Added Tax (VAT)
All Summit delegates are liable to pay value added tax (VAT) at the standard rate of 21% in Spain. This VAT is due to be added to every delegate fee and dinner ticket irrespective of where the customer is based.
Claiming VAT refunds
VAT refunds for EU business delegates – delegates attending from any EU country are able to recover the Spanish VAT charged on delegate fees through what is known as the 8th EU Directive. Delegates can arrange this by submitting a claim through their local VAT office.
Delegates attending from businesses established outside the EU can recover the Spanish VAT under the EU 13th Directive. Delegates should enquire through their local VAT office to determine the procedures involved.
Private individuals registering for the summit will not be entitled to reclaim this VAT via the Spanish authorities and should contact their local tax office to enquire about any possible refund.
The AMEC Spanish VAT number is N8268193C
To encourage group bookings, there is a 10% discount on a booking for five or more of the same delegate fee. This discount will apply to the end of the registration process.
