I LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE UK. WILL YOU CHARGE ME VAT?
Our pricing policy is to offer our products at the same price to all customers, wherever they live. The tax rules are such that we have to pay VAT on all purchases made within the EC (except for certain tax free areas e.g. Jersey, Andorra etc). So to areas where tax applies, we charge the price displayed and pay the relevant tax to the UK government. Where VAT does not apply we still charge the displayed amount. We have taken this decision to encourage European e-commerce and to make sure that the additional costs in trading with non-European community countries are covered. Unfortunately, as a result of this policy, we are not able to refund VAT charged for any of the tax free areas within the EC as we do not charge VAT to these areas. But you will not be charged any more than any other customer.
