What is a payment request and why is VAT not charged on the payment request?

When split billing is activated, the employer receives a monthly payment request to be paid manually, not automatically, with all charging sessions per employee. Once Mobiflow receives this payment, each employee is reimbursed the cost of their charging sessions.

We deliberately chose to work with a payment request rather than an invoice. This is because split-billing sessions are considered a sale from private to company. As a result, no VAT is charged.

A decision then had to be made either to state on the invoice that the service is not subject to VAT, or to draw up another, separate document – a payment request – that covers these transactions. We opted for the latter in the form of a payment request. A payment request can be perfectly brought into the accounts.
