Note: The Canary Islands are outside the VAT system as indicated on Article 3, 3rd paragraph of the 77/388/ECC about VAT. Although the Canary Islands are part of Spain, and are within the EU, they are excluded from the territorial application of this Tax . Therefore there are special conditions for taxes and Custom purposes. Invoices should be issued without adding any VAT, so as you do for Countries outside the EU.
