Some of you might have noticed that we are adding VAT to our products at checkout now. As of the 1st March 2020, Divi Engine have become VAT registered. We thought it would be a good idea to write a post about this and explain the good and the bad points to this.

The Law

We are a company based in the UK and when the company turns over a certain amount, we have to charge VAT on all our products. This is something we have been trying to hold off for as long as we can but have to do this now.

The Bad

The bad news is that if you live in Europe, we have to add VAT on all purchases, so our plugins have become more expensive. If you are VAT registered in the UK or Europe, this would not really affect you – it is the private individuals that affects the most and these are the ones we least want it to. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do.

How does it work?

If you are outside Europe: No changes, we do not charge you VAT
If you are inside the UK: We charge you VAT
If you are inside Europe and are a private individual: We charge you VAT
If you are inside Europe and are a company with a VAT number: You give us your VAT number and we do not charge you VAT

The Good

The good side to this is that Divi Engine is growing. This means more security for you. There is longevity in our plugins and services, so when you buy – you can buy with confidence in knowing that we will be around for the long run to help support and keep offering outstanding plugins for you to use.

We do hope you understand and carry on with us – we appreciate all of you and can’t wait to see what the future brings.
