Tax Free Shopping

float image right 5

Goods exported out of the EC or to overseas British Forces BFPO addresses usually qualify for a tax free sales. Our shopping basket will automatically remove VAT (UK sales tax) once you have entered a valid tax free destination address during the checkout process.

Does VAT apply to all goods?

No, UK VAT is currently charged on most merchandise except books, most food and children`s clothes and children's shoes which are free of VAT and are therefore not eligible for further reductions in sales tax.

What restrictions are there?

You remain liable for any local import duties specific to your countries laws. Most countries operate a threshold system so that lower value items will remain exempt of taxation, however you should contact your local customs and excise department for specific details.

How do I claim my refund?

No claim is necessary - the tax is automatically removed by our checkout when you enter your valid overseas delivery address.

I'm in the UK Forces stationed overseas, how do I qualify?

If you are a member of the UK armed forces stationed overseas with a BFPO postcode you may qualify for VAT free invoicing. You will need to send us an application for exemption from VAT under Article 15.10 of the Sixth VAT Directive or, if not available, a written order/certificate confirming eligibility under that Article from your C.O. prior to dispatch.

I'm registered for VAT in another EU state

If you are registered for VAT in another EU state ( not the UK ) you can enter your VAT details during the checkout to obtain VAT invoicing under the current EU Intrastat rules provided your registration is proven. We may request additional details to support your claim prior to dispatch.
