    How can I download a VAT or GST invoice in Skype Manager?

    Monthly VAT or GST invoices can be downloaded from the Skype Manager admin dashboard for specific allocations made. You can download your VAT or GST invoice for a given month on the 5th of the next month; invoices will be available for six months. 

    You can learn more about how Skype charges VAT or GST here.
    VAT or GST invoices are available to download for admins in the following countries:

    • Bulgaria
    • Cyprus
    • Denmark
    • Estonia
    • Hungary
    • Italy
    • Latvia
    • Lithuania
    • Malta
    • Portugal
    • Romania
    • Slovenia
    • Spain
    • Switzerland

    We do not charge VAT or GST when you buy or allocate Skype Credit, so these transactions are not reflected on monthly VAT/GST invoices. Allocations of subscriptions or Skype Numbers are charged VAT or GST, so you will see these transactions recorded on monthly VAT/GST invoices.
    Your members’ transactions (Skype Credit usage for calls, SMS or Wi-Fi as well as purchases made with allocated Skype Credit) will incur VAT or GST if the registered billing address of the personal linked account is in a country where VAT or GST is applicable. MonthlyVAT invoices for members’ transactions are available in certain countries. Learn more.

    Other Skype Manager reports are available on the admin dashboard.
