Q: Why do you charge TAX (VAT) on your products & shipping?
A. By law you pay VAT on everything within the UK & Europe e.g. you pay for a Coca-Cola in a shop > VAT is already included in the price. Once a business is VAT Registered they must charge VAT on all products and or services e.g. Shipping as its classed as a service. VAT is collected for the government by us then we must pay it to them. This is the law. We cannot waiver VAT as its not a choice & is classed as tax evasion.
Q. Why do you show Incl VAT Prices & Excl VAT Prices?
A. We show both prices as we ship worldwide. Outside of the EU VAT is not applied however once the product lands you pay your countries own TAX in the way of import duty instead which varies dependant on your countries laws.
