VALUE ADDED TAX (VAT)
Taking into account our status as a nonprofit making Association (see Chapter LEGAL INFORMATION), CIGRE is not subject to VAT. The invoices which we issue show a VAT line as 0%.
European members of CIGRE and non-members must thus pay VAT at the rate applicable in their country on the sums invoiced by CIGRE; they will later recover this VAT according to recoverable VAT. This will nullify the VAT operation, i.e. VAT equal to zero.
Prices include local or international shipping costs for hard copies (i.e. Green Books).
However, special orders which include more than 20 items of these hard copies are subject to a manual calculation of the shipping costs by the CIGRE Publications Team. They are calculated according to your shipping address. When you place this order, you are notified and you receive an e-mail with this information including a link to complete your order.
