If your business is located in Thailand, learn how HubSpot handles Value Added Tax (VAT) and how you can update HubSpot with your VAT-related information.

What is Value Added Tax (VAT)?

VAT is generally due when goods and/or services are sold and supplied. Services refer to any activities conducted for the benefit of a person or entity and is not a supply of goods. Generally, VAT is invoiced by the supplier of goods or services, then collected from the customer. The supplier then reports and remits the collected VAT to the tax authorities. There are new VAT rules related to foreign service providers like HubSpot for digital services provided to customers located in Thailand. 

As of September 1, 2021, all service providers providing digital services from abroad and used in Thailand by users who are not-VAT registered will now be required to register for VAT and charge VAT to non-VAT registrants. After that date, HubSpot will charge VAT to non-VAT registered customers whose primary shipping address is Thailand. Learn how to check what your primary company address is set to in HubSpot

  1. A Thailand address as a your primary company address
  2. Your 13 digit Tax ID number (TIN)
  3. A confirmation that you’re a VAT taxpayer in Thailand

How do I update HubSpot with my VAT information?

Only users with Account Access permissions can add VAT information to their HubSpot account. To update your VAT 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.

What happens if I don’t have a Tax ID Number?

A TAX ID Number (TIN)  is a unique 13-digit number  that identifies a person or entity as being registered for VAT and other tax purposes in Thailand.

If you’re unable to provide a valid 13 digit Tax ID Number or if you don’t confirm your VAT registration status (as either a VAT registered  or non-VAT registered), HubSpot will charge, collect, & remit Thai VAT to the Thailand tax authorities on its services.

What if I am VAT registered in Thailand  and I forget to provide a 13 digit Tax ID number & VAT Registration Status?

Please update your HubSpot account with your current VAT number to ensure that it is included on your invoices moving forward.
