What does "reverse charge" mean?

In the European Union, this simply means that we have added your valid VAT number to your Shutterstock account, removing the VAT charge. It’s an indication that any VAT you owe is your responsibility. Instead of paying VAT during your order process, you’re electing to handle VAT independently.

Note: if you're a Dutch customer, you may be transacting with Shutterstock's Netherlands business entity. If this is the case, VAT is always applied to your order, regardless of VAT status.
