How can I pay?

The NCC offers different payment options. Please note that there are additional costs associated with some payment methods. These costs are clearly noted in the options.

What is MultiSafepay?

Paying with MultiSafepay is very simple. You will receive your orders in your email and you pay afterwards what you want to keep. No hassle with paying in advance or waiting for return money. On behalf of MultiSafepay you will receive an invoice which you can pay within 14 days. Very handy!

Can I also pay by invoice?

The NCC offers many payment options and whichever payment option you choose, you will always receive an invoice. If you want to register a group, we offer the option to pay by invoice. Please note that additional administration costs will be charged for paying by invoice.

VAT Reversed Charged?

The NCC takes place in the Netherlands and so the legislation of the Netherlands applies. So for all visitors, the entrance tickets for the congress are taxed with (Dutch) VAT. All tickets are ordered via the regular ticket system and the entrance fees are not included in the stand rental, this means that no visitor (including the Belgian visitor with a stand during the conference) is eligible for the reverse charge. So everyone who orders tickets must pay Dutch VAT (21%).

Where can I find the Chamber of Commerce (Chamber of Commerce) and VAT number?

Both the Chamber of Commerce (44153846) and VAT (NL007393349B01) number are printed on the automatically generated invoice.

Why do I need to create a My NCC account?

Simple: You only have to fill in a few details once and these will be filled in on your next visit (also your KP or KABIZ number) 
Easy: You can download your e-tickets at a later time. 
Handy: You can view your order history. 
Smart: You can add any information (eg KP/KABIZ) to your account later so that you never have to look it up again. 

The data is treated very confidentially as described in the Privacy Statement. This is based on the EU regulations that have been in force since May 2017.

I have registered myself for a lecture / workshop, but I prefer to follow another lecture can I change this?

Registration entitles you to access the entire congress and you don't have to be registered separately prior to a lecture or workshop. In general, whoever comes first serves the first. When there is a lot of enthusiasm (crowded room) for a lecture, the organization can decide to repeat the lecture or workshop.

I registered and paid for 1 day and would like to come another day. How do I do that?

Go to your My NCC account, log in and you can make an extra purchase such as access for an extra day or to the party evening incl. dinner. You can then pay for this extra purchase in the way you prefer. Note: you will receive a new E-Ticket! Bring the correct one to the congress.

Go to My NCC, log in and here you can purchase a ticket for the party evening including dinner. There is also space here to make known food allergies or special dietary requirements. You can then pay for this extra purchase in the way you prefer. Please note, you will receive a new E-Ticket. Bring the correct one to the conference.

I haven’t been at all to the congress or I haven’t been all days, can I get my money back?

If, regardless of the circumstances, you have not been able to come all days or not at all, it is not possible to recover the missed day(s).
