Wellness Advocates whose annual turnover (from their doTERRA distributorship and any other business) are required to register for VAT and will then charge VAT on their own product sales but should be eligible to reclaim the VAT which they have paid on products purchased from the Company. Wellness Advocates are responsible for determining whether or not they are required to register for VAT and, if so, registering and complying with all applicable VAT requirements.
