Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Antwonne D

Category: Attending an event

When tax is charged for a ticket sale and the organiser chooses to send a tax invoice, you can print it from the order confirmation email or under “Tickets” in your Eventbrite account. Not all organisers charge tax on their tickets, and some that do choose not to send tax invoices. In either case, attendees will not receive a tax invoice. Eventbrite can’t create or send tax invoices on the organiser’s behalf.

NOTE: If you need to edit the attendee information that appears on your order and associated tax invoice, take a look eblink{here=>}.

If the order is tax exempt, you&#39;ll receive a success message. If your order is tax exempt and the organiser is issuing tax invoices through Eventbrite, your VAT number will appear on the invoice with 0% VAT.<br>
