If multiple orders are placed using the same billing entity, you might still receive several invoices depending on the country where items where produced and shipped.
For shipments within the EU, due to the fact that Gelato has local presence in several countries, and in line with EU vat regulations, the invoice will be issued under the Gelato local VAT registration.
1) Invoice Consolidation for multiple orders to the same country
- Several orders placed, shipped to Germany, throughout the full month of March against your Billing entity in Germany.
- You will receive 1 invoice addressed to your German Billing entity during the first week of April. This invoice will contain all orders placed.
2) Invoice Consolidation for multiple orders to different countries
- Several orders placed during the month of March shipped to Spain
- Several orders placed during the month of March shipped to Germany
- Several orders placed during the month March shipped to Belgium
- All orders where placed against the German Billing entity
- You will receive 3 invoices addressed to the German Billing entity during the first week of April. One invoice for the orders in Spain, one for German orders, and one for the orders in Belgium.
Why? Due to the fact that items where produced and shipped locally, and according to EU regulations, we need to issue the invoice with our Gelato local VAT registration ID and include the given country's vat %.
