There are two modes of EAS fee calculation available to EAS customers. Both modes can be used for VAT inclusive and exclusive shop pricing models.
- EAS fee included in the end-customer price
This mode is available only for "live" orders, i.e. orders that are handled by EAS during the purchase.
In this mode, EAS fee is included in the calculation for the buyer and becomes part of the taxes and duties line in the order. EAS fee is thus, as an incidental cost to the buyer, is subject to VAT due from the buyer.
In the inclusive pricing model, EAS fee will be calculated "inside" the VAT inclusive price, so that the buyer will still pay only the display price.
- EAS fee billed to the EAS customer as a business expense.
This mode is available both for "live" orders, i.e. orders that are handled by EAS during the purchase, and for orders that are entered via administrative tools/ received via sales channels.
In this mode, EAS fee is not included in the calculation for the buyer and is only calculated at the moment when EAS issues the invoice to the EAS customer.
The choice between two methods can also be determined by accounting rules that are applied by EAS customers. Ultimately, the choice of the EAS fee billing mode is up to EAS customers. Please, contact EAS support to ensure that billing of EAS fees is done in an acceptable for you way.
