Terms of payment

We offer different payment possibilities.

International exhibitors can save on German VAT

In future, in certain circumstances, the Frankfurt Book Fair can issue tax-free invoices to our exhibitors from outside Germany. Changes in German tax law applying to VAT for trade fair services, which came into effect on 1 January 2011, mean that recipients of services based outside Germany may receive invoices that do not include VAT, provided they submit evidence of the nature of their business in good time for us to assess.
Exhibitors based in EU member states can enter their VAT number (sales tax ID number) on their registration form. If you did not do this, please use the tax status disclosure form below to send us the information now. After the appropriate checks, we will then send you our invoices without VAT.
For exhibitors from non-EU countries we require evidence of the nature of your business issued by the relevant authority. Ideally you should submit this together with your registration, or you can send it soon after to VAT@book-fair.com, together with the tax status disclosure form below. If we already received these documents from you for assessment last year, we will now send you your invoices accordingly. If your address and company registration remain unchanged, you do not need to re-submit this information.
