We are based in the United States of America without any physical presence in the European Union or United Kingdown, however, EU laws require us to charge European Union residents Value Added Tax (VAT) starting on Jan 1, 2015. The amount of VAT tax charges depends on the EU country and is shown in the shopping cart at checkout.
Similarly, Brexit requires us to charge UK VAT to UK residents starting on Jan 1, 2021 and is shown in the shopping cart at checkout.
If you have a VAT exemption you can enter your VAT number in your billing address in your account. The VAT number must be entered in your account BEFORE the order is completed.
Please note that the European Union-based VAT number must pass validation with this service and the UK VAT must pass validation on this service so please check it and contact your tax authority if it fails validation.
