If you’re a VAT registered business based within the EU economic area you can avoid paying VAT on your purchase with us by taking the following steps:
1. Enter your VALID VAT-ID when you place your order (the VAT-ID field will appear only when you select country within EU economic area).
2. DO NOT place your order until you see the VAT at checkout go to zero.
Requests to refund VAT on purchases made where there is a valid VAT number, but where the VAT-ID was not entered at the time of the purchase and the order is paid and shipped with invoice including VAT, will incur a EUR 30 admin fee to action the refund.
Please be very careful when you enter your VAT-ID, we recommend you to check if it is valid VAT-ID first at VIAS WEB site as when you enter your order we do not do real time check due to the permanent problems with VIES servers they quite often timeout or are down. We check these VAT-IDs before shipping though, so entering incorrect VAT-ID will lead to significant delay in your order processing and it may be hold for several days untill we collect the not paid VAT 20%, so our advice is to enter only VAT-IDs which first you check on above web site and it confirms them. Some countries like Spain and Italy have “internal” VAT-IDs which are not updated to VIES VAT-ID server, if you have such VAT-ID please do not enter it as it is not valid VAT-ID for EU VAT free purchase.
All orders with us have to be pre-paid. We do not offer any other terms.
