Calculating the environmental contribution to your customers
From 1 January 2021, the participants in the Valumat system will pass on the determined Valumat contribution to their customers.
On invoices between professionals (with VAT number, B2B), the contribution must be clearly specified on the invoice. This can be via a text line (environmental contributions included) or by explicitly specifying the amount of the environmental contributions.
For sales to consumers (B2C), it is not necessary to specify this amount on the invoice or receipt, but it is allowed. The consumer can be informed via other means of communication (e.g. posters, price labels in the shop, mention in advertising brochures, etc.) that his total price includes the recycling fee.
