Q: Can I target specific demographic groups when launching my survey to the Toluna Community?
A: Yes. Standard and non-standard targeting are both available. 
With standard targeting, you can choose 1 or 2 demographic categories from those in the standard set - up to 11 are usually listed. Only those who meet your demographic requirements will then see your survey. 
Or choose non-standard targeting to reach people based on a category not listed in the standard set.  You can then set screening questions at the start of your survey to filter out unwanted respondents.

Q: How is VAT calculated?
A: New basic VAT rule for supplies of services in the EU:

On 1st January 2010 two new basic rules were introduced for the “place of supply of services”. The place of supply of services is important because it decides if VAT is chargeable and whether you need to register for VAT in another member state.

The new rules are:

1 - If the customer is outside the EU (for example the US), no VAT is charged.

2- Within the EU, if the customer is a business, the services are supplied in the country where the customer belongs. When dealing with a business in another EU member state Toluna will need to obtain the customer’s VAT number. The checkout process and account management pages provide fields to enter VAT numbers. Without a valid EU VAT number, the customer can only be considered as “not in business”. In this case, Toluna does not need to charge VAT. The customer accounts for VAT under what is called the “reverse charge".

3 - Within the EU, if the customer is not in business, the place of supply is where the supplier belongs. If the customer is not in business, normally a private individual, then the supplier must charge VAT of the supplier’s country. In our case, the services are provided by Toluna SAS, which is a company based in France. Therefore, the French VAT rate will apply.
