Although written in 2015, we keep the information up to date. Last update 7/2019.
Here in Europe most of the legal systems require to issue an invoice for every income we are paid into our bank account. Luckily, Apple knows it and it enables the invoicing via an iTunes Connect account.
iTunes Connect and invoices
Follow these steps in your iTunes Connect account:
Resources and Help -> Contact Us -> Reports and Payments -> Payments and Financial Reports -> Contact Finance -> Invoicing Apple for Apps -> Invoice Upload (Choose) -> Submit
Currently (October 2018), iTunes Connect gives you instructions to issue and send an invoice for the company Apple Distribution International based in Ireland. It is also stated, that you should issue it with 0% VAT. But, take your time and check current and exact wording by yourself.
Apple Distribution International VAT number
Your accountant probably needs it to handle all EU requirements properly. Now (October 2018), the details needed are IE9700053D and the address:
Apple Distribution International
Internet Software & Services
Hollyhill Industrial Estate
Republic of Ireland
Again, better check the FAQ in iTunes Connect just to be sure it is still correct and this VAT number is still valid.
