You will be charged in USD and whether you’ll be taxed or not depends on your location.
If you are based in the UK, you will be charged 20% VAT.
If in the EU, 20% VAT; unless you have supplied us with a valid VAT number, which you can in your Company Details here.
If based in the US, what tax we charge depends on various factors:
- Different states have different sales tax thresholds (aka “economic nexus”) which determine when sales tax needs to be added. As we cross the nexus threshold, we need to add sales tax from that date forward for customers in those states.
- In some states SaaS is non-taxable. So, even if we have hit the nexus threshold for those states, the tax charged will be 0%.
- Where SaaS is taxable, the rate can vary depending on the county and city your business is located in within that state.
For RotW, we do not charge any tax.
If your organization is exempt from paying taxes, you will need to provide us with an official exemption certificate: just email the BrightLocal finance team from the email address you use to login to BrightLocal and attach the certificate to the email, and we’ll do the rest.
