1. Why does Holvi charge VAT?
Effective from 1st May 2018 onwards, Holvi is required to charge value added tax (VAT) for its additional tools and services (outside of Holvi’s payment services).
The charge will vary depending on your plan and account usage and will be reflected in your monthly bill from Holvi.
2. Does Holvi charge VAT on all services?

Payment services are:
- Holvi Business Account

- Instant Top-Up (only available in Finland)
Add-on services are:
- Online Store (only available in Finland)

More information can be found in the Pricing Terms.
3. Is the VAT included in my pricing model?
The VAT is not included in the pricing overview and will come on top of it.
4. Does the VAT-liability also affect the PRO/BASIC/E-residency pricing plan?
Also our legacy Pro & E-residency pricing models will include the VAT starting 1st May 2018.
The tax will be added on top of the fees and will be displayed on the invoice which is always sent at the beginning of the following month. We are not required to charge VAT on the legacy Basic pricing model. However, if you use add on services that are subject to VAT, this VAT will be added to your service fees.
