Legal Compliance; Taxes

Sales, Custom and Value-Added Taxes
In an effort to remain compliant with respective consumer legislations, we strongly encourage our merchants to maintain good standing with respect to custom and value-added taxes or VAT, where applicable. Due to separate and applicable tax jurisdictions, purchases may be subject to specific sales, custom or value-added taxes, and the shipping time and associated cost may increase. Merchants that sell regularly on the Gourmly platform may be required to reserve for VAT. Although Gourmly does not require sellers to have a VAT number to sell in our marketplace, merchants may be required to pay for VAT for conducting such business in the applicable tax jurisdictions. As a result, we strongly encourage our merchants to consult with their own tax experts and register for a VAT identification number and reserve such VAT dues accordingly.
