What is Value Added Tax (VAT)?

VAT is a tax that is chargeable on most supplies of goods and services consumed in Nigeria. 

Why am I being charged VAT?

HubSpot is registered for VAT in Nigeria as it supplies electronic services to customers. Therefore, HubSpot is required to charge and collect VAT at the prevailing rate to all business and non-business customers. 

Which HubSpot services are liable for VAT? 

All HubSpot services are liable for VAT.

How does HubSpot determine which customers Nigerian VAT applies to?

I am VAT registered in Nigeria, will I still be charged VAT?

All customers, regardless of VAT registration status, will be charged VAT as per local Nigerian VAT regulations. 

How do I add my tax identification number (TIN)?

A TIN is a unique 12-digit number used for tax purposes in Nigeria. Only users with Account Access permissions can add TIN information to their HubSpot account. To update your TIN information:

  • In your HubSpot account, click your account name in the top right corner, then click Account & Billing.
  • In the Company Info tab, update your VAT number.

 Once a valid TIN is added to your account, HubSpot will record it on future invoices. 

Are there any exemptions under which VAT may not be charged?

If your company is exempt from being charged VAT then you will need to send HubSpot a valid exemption certificate and ensure that your company meets all exemption criteria. Exemption certificates should be sent to for processing.
