Do I have to (and how do I) add VAT?

It depends on the local legislation of the country where you are operating. For example in most countries in Europe, the principle is as follows:

  • You don't have to if you are operating under a "VAT not applicable" scheme (in France for example: individuals and most nonprofits).
  • You do have to if your rewards are considered as purchases (see Is my donation considered an investment?) and if you are a business, or an organisation with commercial activities. In this case, the rate to apply depends on the sector of activity of your project.
