Steps to create your invoice:

Let’s take an example of a rental where the driver paid 56€*:

For a car registered in France :

if you are exempt from paying VAT, your invoice should only show the rental amount. In this example, 56€.

If you are subject to VAT, your invoice must include the taxable amount, the amount of the tax and the total amount including tax. VAT rate: 20%.

       - Taxable amount = 56/1,20 = 46,67€

       - VAT Amount : 46,67€ * 20% = 9,33€

       - Amount including Tax = 46,67€ + 9,33€ = 56€

IN SPAIN: Why do I have to provide an intra-community VAT number?

In the European Union, all companies or self-employed professionals providing a service or selling something, must be registered with a VAT number. The Getaround platform is operated by Getaround SAS, which is a French company, so owners in Spain must have a VAT number that works within several EU countries: an intra-community VAT number.

When you are listed as a company or self-employed professional in Spain, for each rental Getaround will provide you an invoice with 0% VAT for the platform intermediation services (invoice between a French and a Spanish company). Note that owners are responsible for invoicing Drivers for the rental service and paying the appropriate VAT with the Spanish tax authorities.

How do I register for an intra-community VAT number?

To register as an intra-community operator, you can visit the web page of the Spanish tax Agency.

Where do I have to input my intra-community VAT number?

You need to add your intra-community VAT number in your company information, in your account. You can find more information on how to update your billing information here.
