It is correct that organisations within the EU are exempt from VAT on training, if they provide a valid EU VAT number.

However, VAT law on the purchase of a registration for a SANS event is classed as purchasing admission into an event, and as such the VAT becomes payable.

SANS Institute, EMEA can only remove VAT for attendees that are based in the same country the Training Event is taking place (only applies to UK, Netherlands, Belgium and Czech Republic) or if you are VAT exempt.

VAT is payable for all registrations from other countries. Contact for further information.
