B2C Orders - Normal orders purchased by end consumers in the EU
All orders placed by end consumers based in Europe will be sent using Import One Stop Shop (IOSS). This means VAT will be applied to the price of the goods and delivery when you checkout at the VAT rate of the country you are ordering to. No Additional duty or taxes will need to be paid by the end user on delivery.
To allow us to send your order using IOSS the maximum value of the order can not exceed £135 excluding VAT and delivery charges. If your order is going to exceed the £135 limit, then please split your order into more than one sale so each order is under the limit. Orders split like this will be sent separately to comply with the IOSS rules and due to this the postage cost will need to be on each part of the order.
B2C Order Examples
You wish to order 10 x SEAL001 in 900mm lengths to Germany. We advertise SEAL001 in a 900mm length at £14.99 including 20% UK VAT.
£14.99 less the 20% UK VAT = £12.49. So each SEAL001 at 900mm is £12.49 ex VAT.
You were ordering 10 of these seals, so £12.49 x 10 = £124.90, so this order is under the £135.00 limit and can be processed as normal and sent IOSS with all taxes paid, so please checkout as normal.
When you checkout, as you are in Germany the VAT rate (correct at time of writing) is 19%, so on checkout the website will add 19% to the order value and also 19% to the delivery total.
(The VAT and delivery costs do not apply to the £135 limit).
However, if for example you wanted to order 20 x SEAL001 length 900mm, the order value would be £12.49 x 20 = £249.80 and would be over the £135 IOSS order limit. In this situation you would need to split the sale and put two or more separate orders through the website to reduce the ex VAT order total to below £135.00
B2B Orders - Orders purchased by businesses or individuals VAT registered in the EU
Orders placed by businesses or individuals that are VAT registered in the EU can be sent ex vat regardless of value as one shipment. This means that VAT, duty and brokerage fees will be applied by customs at the point of entry into the EU (DAP - Delivered at place) and the buyer will then be responsible for paying these costs on delivery. The VAT can then be claimed back on the buyer's VAT return in their country of registration. Please note that if the ex VAT order value is less than £135 the buyer can process the order using the B2C order method instead if they wish.
To allow us to send your order using DAP with VAT removed, we will require your VAT number in the country that you are registered for VAT. We are working on a way that you will be able to enter your VAT number on to our website so the VAT can be deducted from the sale automatically, but in the meantime please contact us directly by email at [email protected] with the following information and we will provide you with a proforma invoice:-
