VideoAsk pricing and taxes

All our prices are tax-exclusive. This means taxes will be added as a separate line item on your invoice. If you don’t see your billing country or region listed in this article, VideoAsk doesn't add taxes to your purchase price. In this case, it’s your responsibility as a consumer or business to pay any applicable taxes to your local government, as needed.

Some organizations and businesses might qualify for an exemption from paying sales tax. If you're currently receiving a non-profit discount you will not be automatically exempt from paying sales tax, and you’ll need to complete the exemption process based on your location. This is explained below.

Tax exemption

Some organizations and businesses may not be required to pay sales tax. If you think your organization qualifies for tax-exempt status, you should apply for tax exemption before upgrading or renewing your VideoAsk account. You'll notice that your exemption request is linked to Typeform S.L. This is because VideoAsk is a Typeform S.L. product.

You have 60 days from the date of purchase to apply for tax exemption.

Once your exemption status has been approved, future purchases will be exempt from tax where applicable.

If you're charged tax after your exemption status has been approved, please contact us by clicking the Contact Support button at the bottom of this page.

Invoices

Your invoices, which can be accessed in the Plan & Billing section of your Account & Org settings, contain the applicable tax for your billing location, the price of your plan, and the total amount paid.
