Terms and conditions

Registration Terms and Conditions

Registration fees are based on the registration category, the date of receipt of the registration form and payment. The prices indicated are per person and are only applicable if both the registration form and the payment are received before the deadlines mentioned. Please note, if you have not paid before the due date Euroheat & Power reserves the right to invoice you with the higher fee if a registration deadline has passed in the meantime.

Euroheat & Power will be performing membership and category audits on the registration lists at various intervals. Should a registrant be in the wrong category, their category will be adjusted to reflect the accurate pricing and category. No refunds are available for registering in an incorrect category or missing to enter a discount code and withdrawing registration as a result of this correction.

The online registration form serves as a contract between the participant and Euroheat & Power.

Please note that entrance to the event is assured only upon receipt of registration fees. Euroheat & Power reserves the right to refuse admission to registered participants whose payment is not settled.

Confirmation

Upon completion of your online registration, you will be sent a confirmation by email including the payment status. The confirmation is sent to the address provided on the registration form.

VAT

British VAT is applicable on the registration fees (20%). As stated in the new article 53 of Directive 2006/112/EC, the supply of registrations is subject to VAT applicable in the country where the event is taking place, even when supplied to taxable persons. The VAT charge is therefore applicable to all participants (everyone, entrepreneur or not, valid VAT registration number or not, customer located within the EU or outside of the EU, all must be charged local VAT). In most cases, this paid VAT can be claimed back, if the client’s valid VAT number is mentioned on the invoice. For more information, please check with your tax office or accounting department. If applicable, please fill out your company’s VAT number in the corresponding section on the registration form. Euroheat & Power reserves the right to amend this charge should the VAT rule or rate change.

For EU companies to apply VAT directives and in order to avoid any complications, please make sure your VAT number is officially recognised by the EU Taxation and
Customs Union office: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/vatRequest.html. Should your company not be VAT registered or your EU VAT number not be recognised by
the EU site mentioned above, the VAT amount will still be added to your invoice and won’t be refundable. Euroheat & Power cannot be held responsible for any problem you may
encounter related to VAT refund.

Invoice

Only digital (PDF) versions of invoices will be sent to participants after completion of your online registration and payment. In accordance with the EU regulation dated 13/07/2010 (please refer to the explanatory note of the EU), which has come into effect on 1 January 2013, we can only issue invoices after payment has been received or completion of the event.

The invoice issued will use the billing details provided on the registration form so please make sure you have provided us with the correct information (company name, address and VAT number if applicable).

If Euroheat & Power are unable to determine the validity of a VAT number, we will have to issue the invoice without your VAT number. In this case your company can’t claim VAT.

Cancellation & refund policy

Any cancellation of registration should be communicated in writing to Euroheat & Power by e-mail to events@euroheat.org or by fax to +32 2 740 21 19.

Congress registration cancellations will be subject to a British Pounds (£) 75 cancellation fee (plus VAT) until 28 February 2017. After that date, no refunds or exceptions will be made. All refunds will be processed after the event.

Name changes

Congress registrations are transferable without a fee through 30 April 2017. However, we cannot change the invoice or make any other changes. Shared registrations are not permitted. Please email events@euroheat.org regarding all name changes.

Euroheat & Power offers upon prior agreement special delegate packages to organisations.
