If you are a UK or EU (European Union) resident, we are required to charge you UK Sales Tax or ‘Value Added Tax’ (VAT). This is currently 20% of your order.
If you're outside the EU and the address you’ve asked us to deliver to is also outside the EU, you don’t have to pay VAT and your shopping basket will automatically remove it. Please note though, that if you ask us to send the goods to an address inside the EU, the exemption doesn’t apply and VAT will be added on again.
Here is a handy set of rules for VAT application:
|Billing Address||Delivery Address|
|UK||UK||Includes 20% VAT|
|UK||Non-UK||Includes 20% VAT|
|EU||EU||Includes 20% VAT|
|EU||Non-EU||Includes 20% VAT|
|Rest of the world (ROW)||ROW||No VAT|
|ROW||UK or EU||Includes 20% VAT|
Our website won't, we're afraid, allow you to override these rules. For instance, if you’re in the UK, you can’t choose $ pricing as a way of not paying VAT, because if we let you we'd be hauled in to jail, never to be seen again.
