Purchases can be made either as a private customer / author, or a corporate customer in the Springer shop.
If you intend to buy on behalf of a company or institution, please select the option "corporate customer" when entering your address. The name of your company will appear on the invoice which is often the precondition for reimbursement. If you order from a European Union country and if you have a VAT ID, you may enter it during the checkout process. In this case, no VAT will be charged by the Apress shop. In case you are ordering from the US and your institution is tax exempt: The Springer shop currently does not offer the possibility to enter a tax exempt number. If you buy on behalf of an institution that is tax exempt, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
